Song 140 – Rolling Down The Hill

By May 22, 2018Songs

The music for this Song was not used as the music for a Psalm. As already mentioned in the description of Song 015 – Little Girls, Melanie once explained, “Dad likes Jared, but he love’s Jared’s family.” A highlight of living in Houston was driving over to Vidor to be with Melanie’s family and with Jared’s family. On the 15th of December, 2007 I captured one of these visits in this song about Colby’s antics. A few weeks earlier we drove to Vidor to spend Thanksgiving with Melanie and her family. Of course, this meant we were going to be spending time with Jared’s extended family, which sometimes means 200 folks. It is just like a Nelson Reunion. First, we went to Grandpa and Grandma Wright’s house, where the grandkids were watching television. Soon it was time for the feast, and we all went to a private re center one of the family built for this kind of family get togethers. I had no idea the Wright Family ha such a place. It did not take long for Colby to get bored sitting around inside. So he went outside to play. He found a big yellow plastic tube he could climb in. It did not take very long for him to realize you could roll the tube up the hill and it would roll back down. Also, you could climb into the tube at the top of the hill, and roll down inside of the tube. The video captures the moment I attempted to capture in the song. What a blast watching Colby and his cousins having a blast!
