9C OUICS X ' r IS not only liecause I ha e this line oiiportunity to let i)eople know “W’hat Kind of Home Surroundings I Like Best,” that 1 write this essay, but because 1 think ewery child should let his parents and friends know just what kind of a home appeals to him most. It is not so easy for one to sit down and write, especially on a subject like this one. W’e all know what we like and what we don’t like, but when we ha ■e the opportunity to exjrress ourselves it is difticidt to hud a i)lace to begin. ■A country home ai)peals to me more than any kind. In the country- one has everything for which one can wish. 1 do not care about a mansion or a fairy castle, but 1 like a m Klern home a small cottage that is warm and cozy in the winter and cool and refreshing in summer; a home that is surrounded by trees and flowers, where birds, as the robin, blue-bird, si)arrow, red-bird and humming-bird, build their nests close together and raise their young. How delight- ful it is t( awake by the thrilling notes of tlift ' erent birds mingled until they form one sweet melody. •After I ha e been awakened by the birds, 1 want to arise, dress and go out into the fresh morning air air that is tilled with God’s lo e. There we can breathe, laugh and take exercise and realize that we should thank our Maker for the grand opportunity that He has given us. Xext 1 like to walk through the helds, looking at and occasionally e.xamining different species of llowers. I like to gather daisies and mix and arrange forget-me-nots and wild roses with them, until they make me think of the different colors of the rainbow. Wdiile laughing with the dowers 1 like to watch the lambs play and run from one large shade to another. One cannot get lonely and blue even when alone for he is surrounded I)y friends as the lambs, calves, birds, dowers, and hordes of tiny insects that are so small they cannot be seen when under the tiniest blade of grass. As the season changes it is only natural that our “surroundings” will change also. In the autumn we dnd our home, which was sur- rounded by green trees that formed and acted as a brilliant green back- ground for a small yellow cottage, turned into red and gold that is as lovely, charming, and picturesque as any painting we ha e ever seen. 112 Jk-

Now we are sorry to see our dear friends, wliom we lia e lauglied and talked with, the ones we ha e learned to understand, lea e us, going to find a warmer climate ns winter approaches. It makes us long for and dream of the next summer when we can he together as before and enjoy the beautiful things that nature has gi ' cn us. Hut aren’t we cheered by the work of fall! W’e could not ha ’C such lo ely summers if it were not for the fall and winter. W ' e would not know just how to enjcjy and ai)preciate the warm days if it were not for the cold winter ones. In the fall of the year after the wind has blown the leaves from the trees lea ing them bare, who does not like to see the white frosts co er the roofs of our home and barns, where we know everything is protected from the cold? The fields are all white, the fodder shocks with large yellow pumpkins as pals form a beautiful setting where an artist may steal away to himself and imint one more of the beautiful scenes of nature. Next comes the cold winter months when the younger boys and girls are in school carr ’ing on their daily work. W’e find deep snows. W’e lo e to sit and watch the snow fall and we believe our teachers enjoy the snow scenes with us. d ' hen in the e ening we fine to steal away to our warm room, V here w e find our desk, writing table, chair and our l)ed, to study and prej are our work which has been assigned to us by our teachers for the next day. d ' here one can find us with compass, ruler and pencil in hand working on a i)roblem in Algebra or (Geometry or we will be wondering why we have to ha e two years in French or some other language before we can graduate. Those horrible words or sentence structures are what make us want to go to bed hoping to dream just what it is all about when we realize it is getting late and we just must go to work. Only a short time in school and the ver}’ first thing we know we ha e completed another school year, an(l are back in the summer sunshine ' once more with our former companions. d ' his is all I would ever want or ask for “a country home, with things in the country surrounding it.” Helen Morehead, ’ji. •4 113 Ih -
