Help Katelyn Win!

We must encourage our children to love nature if there is to be any left for their children to enjoy…

Limpkin

Limpkin on Hillsborough River

A contact of mine, Andrea Munro, needs your help! Her ten year old daughter Katelyn, along with two of her friends, wrote a song for a contest they had at school titled “OH, SWEET RIVER”, a song about the Hillsborough River. The lyrics go like this:
Up, Down
Up to the river on Sunday
My heart is pounding cause’ I can’t wait
For this day to begin
I’m sitting
Right here with all of my friends
Don’t want this day to ever end
Oh, sweet river
I don’t care if your treasuries
Sweet river
I don’t care if you’re hot or cold
Sweet river
Don’t go cause’ we’ll be here tomorrow
Yes we’ll be here tomorrow
Left, right
Skipping stone to stone
The waters rushing up my legs
I love this feeling
I’m sitting
Right here with all of my friends
Don’t want this day to ever end
Oh, sweet river
I don’t care if your treasuries
Sweet river
I don’t care if you’re hot or cold
Sweet river
Don’t go cause’ we’ll be here tomorrow
Yes we’ll be here tomorrow
We don’t care if the rain comes, pouring down
We’ll all sit around the fire and sing a song
We all sing na na na na na na na na na
We all sing na na na na na na na na na
Oh, sweet river
I don’t care if your treasuries
Sweet river
I don’t care if you’re hot or cold
Sweet river
Don’t go cause’ we’ll be here tomorrow
Yes we’ll be here tomorrow
Alongside writing all of the lyrics, the girls had to create a tune to the track as well. With the help of their teacher who played guitar, they were able to win their school contest, sing the song, and record it on a CD. Their new composition has now reached national level after winning a competition with the popular music sharing website, SoundCloud. We need your votes to help these girls take first yet again!

About notacluegal

Jeanene was born in Pittsburgh, PA. As a young child her family was very active in the outdoors. Things changed when her parents decided to travel down different paths in life and with that decision so went many of the opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Being lucky to live in the suburbs Jeanene always had a backyard to play in and loved being outdoors. As the years passed she took every opportunity to be outdoors. She bought land in Tennessee and as a single mom moved her young daughter to the mountains. The were many life lessons learned on that mountain. There was no plumbing on the property – or even a house, but that did not stop her. She learned to live off of what was available and built her own cabin from the trees on her property. Those were rough years but the most rewarding. Now Jeanene resides in Tampa, Fl. and works as an office manager full time….but still yeans to be outdoors. Jeanene started “Not a Clue Adventures” to teach everyone she could how wonderful the outdoors are! That camping and fishing and hiking can be done by everyone and at many different levels. Single mom’s no longer have to be afraid to take their sons and daughters outdoors. By working with young couples, single parents and even seniors, she gets to teach others about her love for the outdoors and hopes to open their eyes to new adventures. In 2009, Jeanene completed certification as a Leave No Trace Instructor. She also works closely with the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF), Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) and the Florida State Parks. Jeanene is also certified in First Aid/Adult CPR.
