Tried out Granny's big binoculars--and liked them better when she looked into them from the opposite end and made everything smaller;
Showed me her long her hair had grown, and told me she wants it to grow to the floor (Rapunzel?)
Made her Poppa Larry laugh and smile--a lot. She went to his workshop to get him because she wanted to go and see the new chickens. She didn't ask, just told him, "You need to come right now and show me those chickens."
Stood out in a soft April shower, looking for a rainbow. We didn't see one, but the sun shining through the rain was beautiful all by itself.
And this little lady is so beautiful too, with her pretty smile, busy mind and surprising imagination. She'll be turning four this month, and it is so hard to believe she is so old (her birth seems like only last year) and yet so young because she knows so many things and can talk about anything, real or imagined. Her grandfather (my son Jon) would have been fascinated, amazed and completely besotted by her. I am thankful every day that he was there for her birth and had at least a little time with this special little person.
