She's happy!

She was thrilled to get her card!

And she's coming again tomorrow.  I told Roger we would be busy this time tomorrow night...well, hopefully, we will be winding down.  I keep watching the weather and now rain is in the forecast for tomorrow evening and for Saturday.

She told me before she left Tuesday that she might stay 4 days or 3 days...but she told her mom that she might stay two 5 days.

You have to understand that the 5 days represents the fingers on one hand.  When she came last weekend, she designated a finger for a day and each day had activities planned.  the first day was designated as the day she gets here, the next finger was for going to the park, and the next was CREEK day....and she said it just light that...you could tell it was a big deal...and the 4th finger was 'staying home and shooting bad guys with Papaw!'  (An Xbox game...she wants Papaw to play, and me to be in here doing something, and she just messes around and plays with her toys.)  Again, a lot of excitement in her voice for just staying home.  And the fifth day was for going home.

It rained so much we did not go to the park or the daylily gardens...I think we will go to the gardens even if it is wet and messy this time...

 I captured this on the way home Tuesday...between here and Terre Haute.  And I saw two others but there was no place to pull off the road, plus they were too far off.

Isn't Lorelei adorable??!! Is she about 4 years old? I have a granddaughter that is 3 1/2. She keeps us in stitches. She loves an audience and she loves to make us laugh, unless she falls, then even if she isn't hurt, we better not laugh. She doesn't like it if the laughter comes when she isn't intending to be funny! My granddaughter loves to watch her dad play x-box, too. They sure do brighten the day!

Oh WOW, a bald eagle! And a good in-flight shot from such a distance. Looking at this picture of her holding your card, I notice how very much she has grown!!

Hi Rose, I am back to answer your question do I miss England? In a lot of ways yes I do. It will always be home to me. However, since my parents passed away and I lost my sister almost five years ago, I find that where I am right now is home. My homesickness isn't like it used to be because before I missed my family so much, still do but it is different. I lived in England for the first 25 years of my life, I've lived in America now for almost 38 years. I look forward to going back for a visit one day. It will be interesting to see how I feel then :) Have a great weekend!

Hugs,
Betsy

I don't think I have ever seen that girl when she was NOT smiling :-) What a joy! Creek day must be great!

Lorelei is such a special child to enjoy simple things like going to the park and playing games with Pawpaw. Obviously she feels loved and nothing gets better than that!

Her smile always makes me smile....:)

Oh boy oh boy she sure loved her card. It is very special to her and I bet she was surprised to find the pocket on the back.
Great shot of the eagle. MB
