Army Song

Okay, if many of you have gmail, then you'd know about the new Buzz thing and (if you have my email address) what I've been doing. I've been posting the songs for the military, and I decided to post them on here. And seeing that I have been and Army brat, it seems only fitting to do Army first!! :) Don't worry, I'll post all of them. Tell me what military part you're in or you like!! Here's Army....in honor of my father: SSG (E-6) Darrell K. Hamelund and brother: PV2 Nathan S. Hamelund (who graduates in a week!!!!). Love you both!!!

March along, sing our song, with the Army of the free,
Count the brave, count the true who have fought to victory
We're the Army and proud of our name
We're the Army and proudly proclaim

First to fight for the right,
And to build the nations might,
And the Army goes rolling along
Proud of all we have done,
Fighting till the battle's won,
And the Army goes rolling along.

Then it's Hi! Hi! Hey!
The Army's on it's way.
Count off the cadence loud and strong(TWO! THREE!)
For where e'er we go
You will always know
That the Army goes rolling along.

Blog Tip!

Hey y'all!!! Have you ever followed a blog that later on you thought was a very bad mistake?? I don't think I have, well except for two which I'll keep anonymous. Well, here's your help!!! :) The first thing you do is sign into your account, then on the blogger dashboard scroll down to the list of blogs you're following, next hit the "manage" button (that's right beneath the list of blogs), it'll show you the whole list. Next step: when you're on the page, it'll list the blog name and address, then it'll say "Settings", then you hit that. A new window will pop up and then there will be a button saying, "Stop following this site", and you hit that. There ya go! Please tell me if it worked!

Thoughtful Thursday

Hey y'all! This is my new idea...lets see if I can keep it!! :) To start off the Thoughtful Thursday this is what I want y'all to do... Go to someone's blog (example: someone who doesn't have a lot of followers, someone who rarely gets comments, soemone who just started a blog, someone that is your friend and you want to encourage them today, or someone's blog that you enjoy looking at, but aren't following) and leave a ENCOURAGING comment, it can be anybody's blog. Also, if you are not following it, maybe start following it. I don't care what y'all do, but keep it encouraging, I know I love to get encouraging comments. :) Hehe The minimum that I want you to do is two people, you can do more if you want! Hope y'all like this better than the poetry. :) Now, get started! :) Haha

Poetry Wednesday~Chartless

Hey!! Since, this was a MAJOR bad idea...I think this is my last poem....sorry those who like it, but I have made a new idea, so stay tuned tomorrow to see what it is!! Here is the poem:
"Chartless"
Emily Dickinson
"I never saw a moor,
I never saw a sea;
Yet now I know how the heather looks,
And what a wave must be.
I never spoke with God,
Nor visited in heaven;
Yet certain am I of the spot
As if a chart were given."

Poetry Wednesday

Howdy!! Well, hope you like the Poem, I do. Please be praying for us, Mom and I came down with a cold, and now I am starting to have a sore throat! Thanks!

I'm Nobody! Who Are You?
Emily Dickinson
"I'm nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there's a pair of us-- don't tell!
They'd banish us, you know.
How dreary to be somebody!
How public. like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!"

Route 66 Skirt Giveaway

Howdy! I found this giveaway at Feminine Cowgirl through my friend Koda's blog! I saw this skirt and it's a giveaway!!! Isn't it cute???? All you have to do is go over to her blog and find out more! Good luck!


I Know!!!! I Know!!!!

Howdy y'all I know! I totally missed Poetry Wednesday, I have been a bit busy! Lets see, updates: We got letters from Nathan on Monday, very encouraging! We also started GNC (for the new comers here: GNC is Good News Club) on Monday. I took over Issy's class since there were only THREE kids!!!! She decided that I was capable of three kids, and I am. Tuesday: I can't think of anything that we did that was long on there, a day of break! Wednesday: Well, of course we did school, mom and I watched a good movie afterward (that is like a exception to our rule: no movies on the weekdays, which is good, keeps us focused on our school), and then we had church. Now Thursday: I can only be on here for a little because, we just got back from gym, I have to study my presentation that's due tomorrow, I have to read a lot of my book "Amy Carmichael of Dohnauver", and I also have to do other stuff. Very busy! Well anyway, I'll post yesterday's poem right now. Oh the reason that I may not be able to put the tag on here, Sarah, is because our computer is being difficult, we have a new Internet thingy. Sorry! I'll try it when I have more time!


"God Is at the Anvil"
Lew Sarett
"God is at the anvil, beating out the sun;
Where the molten metal spills,
At his forge among the hills,
He has hammered out the glory of a day that's done.
God is at the anvil, welding golden bars:
In the scarlett streaming flame
He is fashioning a frame
For the shimmering silver beauty of the evening stars."

Also, this pic is NOT mine, I got it from the Sense and Sensibilty Patterns website (click name to go there). I just wanted to show y'all what it looked like! Bye!
