daniel boone

Now what does Daniel Boone have to do with farming? Well, not much. But hang around with me for a minute and I'll tell you a funny little story.
As I've said before our son is a fan of the movie, and often acts like Daniel Boone and his sisters play and hunt  right along with him. I have to say I'd rather have them act like that then, well some of the other "role models" that are out there, if you can call them that. Anyways...
Yesterday I walked by his room, (I just happened to notice out of the corner of my eye as I sped  by, with a handful of wet, dirty, towels) and saw that his room was all dark and his window was covered up. I turned back and looked in and saw he taken some Boone looking clothes, his coon skin hat, drew a face on a paper plate (not sure where he got the paper plate),  hair and all, and cap gun, and put them up on his window with my clothes pins!  I got a good laugh over that, just seeing it hanging in his window. How wonderful an imagination is that?! Later he proudly came up to me and asked to go in his room, and see what wonderful thing he had created for me to see. He told me "That's Daniel Boone"! I smiled and tussled his dirty blonde hair and looked at his handsome, young face and those wonderful blue eyes. I am so very thankful for such wonderful, creative children! I told him that that was great, and wait until he showed Daddy. He grinned and couldn't wait to show him either.
