Guess who came to visit?
Yesterday, when we went to get the mail, she saw my neighbors three grandsons playing kick ball in the street. We live in a cul-de-sac, which makes street play much safer. She played, and ran, and jumped, and giggled and screamed when she got put "out" -- such delight!
When the boys' mother came to pick them up, and she had to come inside, she cried. She wanted "to play with those boys" some more. It made me sad to see her sadness, but she recovered pretty quickly and transferred her four-year-old-love to Edgar.
She is watching The Lion King right now, and I have a short break from being the recipient of her monologues and the constant companion to her imagination.
Two of my buddhas enjoy the sunshine and the scent of rosemary. I love my happy, big- bellied Ho Tai buddhas.
Amelia and Chris are in New Orleans for the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon and 1/2 Marathon for the American Cancer Society. Chris, Rachel, Kyle, and Steve will be running--Amelia and Robin will be watching.
Oh, how I love all the shelves and containers in this craft room! (Stephie, I like the way she has her paints tilted so the tops show up so nicely...)
Uh oh, another disturbance in B.E.'s room; evidently Edgar is causing problems. He adores her, but he just knocked over her castle.
