Andy's little clip

I love a little movie Andy made about riding him and Ella to Blonde Bay and Waddy's track. It is really cute. It was on revver but I have taken it off.
Today I watched 'O Brother Where Art Thou' with one of my classes. I love that movie. It's great. The opening song 'Big Rock Candy Mountain' is an old American folk song by Anonymous. I love those lyrics. They are so childlike and cute, yet filled with adult longings. We have been reading the book 'Out of the Dust' by Karen Hesse in that class and I have totally enjoyed it all. I hope the kids have enjoyed it half as much as I have. It is another repetition for me of both texts and has deepened by appreciation immensely.
