We were out with Sadie and Seward family for Easter Dinner. For a 20 month old, she is a "big" girl in many ways. She continues to build her vocabulary and added chocolate among other words today. Her strength continues to amaze us. She will pick up and walk away with larger items than we think possible. Her Grandma Carolyn and Ben brought her a little John Deere tractor that would talk if buttons were pushed. It didn't take long for her to figure it out. Great Grandparents took out a little soft, white lamb for her but it didn't have the attraction of a tractor. While Grandpa Ben showed her how to blow bubbles, it didn't take long for her to learn how it was done. She hasn't figured out what the bubbles are but knows how to "pop" those that came her way. Her feminine instincts showed through by being proud of her new shoes. Some years ago, the Jr. High band instructor commented that if Julie and John would get married and have children, they should be excellent musicians. That is still to be seen but some of us think She is pretty special.
We did have a nice rain shower this evening. I still don't have a gauge out, but it was very welcomed. We might even get more before the day is over. Now we are waiting to see if the old adage holds that we will have rain for the next 7 Sundays.
