I was standing in my garden checking on things when I heard them. Canadian geese were flying high and fast, honking their encouragement to the leader of the v. I stood and listened, reveling in the beauty of the sound and the orderliness that is God's creation. Anyone else marvel at Canadian geese?
I'm so glad these two get along so well. They are six and a half years apart in age, but they don't let that stop them from being pals. Bug is a huge help with her and Bundle knows if she can't have Momma right away she can always go to big brother.
Toadie: (pointing to my tight-covered legs) What DAT?
Me: Tights. They keep my legs warm.
Toadie: (pulls at the tights) Iss won't come off!
Me: No, I like them on.
(A few minutes later, Toadie walks up with his blanket and lays it over my legs.)
Toadie: Here, Momma. Kep warm. Tights off now!
I'm a youth group leader at our church now. Add this responsibility to the AWANA I take Bug to and Toadie is not a happy camper. Two nights away from me is just too much for this fellow so when he sees me getting my bag and coat he scrambles to grab his socks and shoes and begs to go with me. It's heartbreaking for me. So, in the morning I see this: Toad's socks and shoes left by the front door.
