Little Chap Logan



The Little Chap Who Follows Me

A careful man I want to be.
A little fellow follows me.
I do not dare go astray
For fear he’ll go the self-same way.
I cannot once escape his eyes.
Whate’er he sees me do, he tries.
Like ME he says he’s going to be-
That little chap who follows me.


I must remember as I go
Through summer suns and winter snow,
I am building for the years to be-
That little chap who follows me.

Hey Toph,

Cute kiddo you have there. What a great poem. I am sure you are a great dad to follow.

On another note, really, let me know what I can do to help plan the reunion.

I'm glad you are thinking about our buddy. He needs a good daddy. I like the poetry better than the videos of the week.

Yea for Dads! All thanks be to my Dad who did what he thought best to raise and train each of his seven children. He has always been the Dad of my dreams. I love his example, his humor, his character. He's been there for me and for my children. He's still there for his grandchildren large and small. He's one who I can call my best friend, provider, helper, experienced guy, protector, fix it man, my hero, my Dad!

Topher- You have the cuttest little family ever. I hope all is going well. I found you through Boo. I realized blogging is a really great thing when I am slowly starting to catch back up with the Affleck Family. :)
