Cousin time

We are so lucky. My sister and her kids came to visit. We loved having them and it was a perfect 83 degree day. My very talented and creative neice, Riley, took these pictures,  loaded them onto our computer, and edited them before she left. What a wonderful gift!

I wish I could be a fly on the wall in Ava's classroom. She doesn't tell me much about what goes on there. I was asking her about friends at school one day and she told me that a boy named Finn sits next to her at lunch and she had just spoken to him that day. It went a little something like this, as the kids around her attempted to identify the kind of juice that was in a certain capri sun.

Ava: "It's kiwi-strawberry."
Finn, to one of the other kids : "She talked!!"
