This is the book I read to my children
this is the one I wish I could find
Our kids are spread out...Grace is almost 10 years older than Mattie with Charles in between
so their book looks almost as tattered as this one
To market, to market, to buy a fat pig,
Home again, home again, jiggety-jig;
To market, to market, to buy a fat hog;
Home again, home again, jiggety-jog;
Somehow...this is the rhyme that has lasted over the years....
...because when we all travel to and from one another's houses
or on other more distant trips here and yonder,
it might not surprise you to find
a safe arrival home...
includes a modern day text
that will simply say
I so hope summer vacation plans for you and those you love, will meet all your expectations
and get you where you want to go...
but most of all...
back at home
safe and sound!
