There is a creek running through their back yard and it is quite full from the recent rains. The kids had fun gathering rocks, which they called "catching fish" while SIL dug weeds from the area. They put on their rain boots to walk in the wet soggy area. You can see the signs of spring all over. and it got so warm my grand daughter took off her sweater.

too small but still much loved.
we took them to a near by Chinese restaurant for dinner.
We met my brother there too, as he only lives down the street
from where we were going. My grand daughter wrote me this love note on her paper place mat.
And then she showed me that she could also write in Chinese!
Some of these letters are backyards and sideways, but she
knows how to say them and she will get them right very very soon.

precious in every way.
When I am putting them to bed I always tell them that I love them
more than all the stars in the sky and more than all the fish in the sea.
Last evening I just happened to say "Do you know how much I love you?"
And my grandson popped up LOUDLY:
"More than all the stars in the sky, more than all the fish in the sea
and more than all the farts in the world!"
Little boys are so funny.
