For School, we have been reading The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood by Howard Pyle. So one night, the boys wanted me to make some pictures of them playing Sherwood Forrest. The girls, who were already in the bed, heard the news, and begged to come out and play. And who was I to deny the bond of siblings in a school field trip to the corner of the yard. David is wearing his grandfathers Robin Hood Hat. My Dad wore this in a play in elementary school. I am still amazed is how each of the kids knows their "role". David is always the lead character and Caleb the supporting. So as you might have guessed, David is Robin hood and Caleb is Little John. The girls take turn in being the lead girl. This time, Julia is playing Maid Marion. Abigail is a village girl.
The day Robin Hood met Little John. Little John uses his quarterstaff and gives Robin Hood a licking. This ensures his entry into the band of Merry Men
