In A Child's Head

Our family recently started reading Spencer's Mountain by Earl Hamner. (The story was later the basis for the 1970's television show, The Waltons.) Following the tales of Clay and Olivia Spencer and their host of children has produced a lot of late night laughter in our home because the silly banter between the Spencer siblings reminds us so much of the humor of our own lives.
