she read, she saw...

I know this is normally a Friday feature but the daughter and I decided to do it today.  Today is special.  On this day, 46 years ago, he was born.

I have chosen an old photo of Andrew Henry that I took in Montana about 14 years ago, and my daughter has chosen a quote she feels pairs well with him, who, to us, is a man among men.


"None of you can ever be proud enough of being a child of such a father who has not his equal in this world - so great, so good, so faultless.  Try, all of you, to follow in his footsteps and don't be discouraged, for to be really in everything like him, none of you will ever be.  Try, therefore, to be like him in some points, and you will have acquired a great deal." - Queen Victoria

Happy Birthday Andrew Henry.  Your girls adore you!

Sorry I've been a bit absent from blogland this week - daughter is home for a visit.  I'll be back soon, hope you all have a super weekend!
