A Man's Touch

This Monday was President's Day, and the Sm'Arties had a guest art teacher. This guest teacher, with his background in Scouting and Tree Surgery, was the perfect one to teach the Sm'Arties how to tie a few knots.  He's trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent - He's my husband!

He taught the Sm'Arties to tie six Boy Scout knots. Each person had a section of rope.

We tied square knots, double half-hitches, bow lines, sheet bends, clove hitches, and taut-line hitches.

He's got style

And then I fell into the well.  (It's a pretty shallow well.)  I shouted, "Help!  I need some Sm'Arties to come save me!!!"
Sm'Arties to the resuce!  They tied a rope to the swing set, but it didn't reach.

So they attached the ropes end to end.

I am saved!  Hurray for the Sm'Arties!
