This land

Liam was taught to sing This Land is Your Land by, I assume, my mother. He sings it a lot and visits (daily) the Redwood Forest and the Gulf Stream Waters in his pretend play.

He hasn't done this for a while, but tonight he asked again to see it "on the computer." So we called up the version from the inauguration. Liam likes this one a lot. He especially likes that they are singing and dancing outside, and often will insist on going outside immediately to sing and dance on the porch.

If I live to be 825 years old, maybe, just maybe, I'll be able to make it through this whole production without tearing up.

Here's a link to the version we watch

Here's Liam's version; note he insists on wearing his boots and a woolly hat to match Pete Seeger.

not one thing in this whole wide world can possibly be cuter than that.
