Poetry With Autumn: "The Highwayman" by Alfred Noyes

This poem is really long, so it took a while for Autumn to memorize. This take of her reciting it had a few mistakes and I had to toss her a word, but since it is over five minutes long to recite she decided it was good enough. I have to agree! We are really enjoying video taping these recitations because it motivates us to work hard, but sometimes we wish we had a video editor...and my arm wishes we had a tripod :)

Do any of you use video editing software? What would you recommend? We would need something user friendly because we wouldn't want to waste a lot of time on it, but we think it would
 be fun to use for school projects to splice together some movies or music videos or add background music or titles etc.


  1. I think she did very well. I am Ben by the way. I came with the Adams, I think you would remember me. I was looking online to show my family pictures of Brimley Michigan when I found a picture of Autumn and Alaina. I went to the website that it was from and that is how I found your blog. I think that Autumn did great with the poem.

  2. Hi Ben! Autumn says "thanks" for the compliment! She really had a lot of fun while you were up here and we hope that you get to come up and visit again sometime!

  3. I hope I can visit again too. I I had a lot of fun playing with Autumn and Alaina!
