Today I was blessed with the most handsome little visitor. Sweet John Thomas came to play. Oh, he is such a delight! Just beginning to walk, and developing a personality all his own. Such determination! We ate breakfast together, then he took a little nap. Then we went for a ride. I don’t have a stroller, but I do have a wagon. So, off we went…down the driveway, up the street to the circle and back again. Then a stop to play with the pumpkins in the wheelbarrow, and finally a few minutes to rest in the swing. He had a little something to drink, and then we were able to go out and play with Finn and Alex a while. Such fun! His parents, Tara and Will are doing a wonderful job with him! Such blessings…God is good to us!
The next day, my friend, Lucy Jane, came to play. She was all dressed in fall colors, and was ready to have some fun. It has been a while since she had visited, so she had to get reacquainted with Finn. Oh! But Finn was happy to see her! We decided we would build a turkey…..out of a pumpkin and some wood cutouts. It was so beautiful outside, that Finn and Alex came out to help. Good thing they did. Cause Lucy Jane could not get the feathers in…and I could not get the feathers in, and it was hard for Alex to get the feathers in…but he did! And, soon…we had ourselves a very cute Tom Turkey!
Then later on that afternoon, Sweet John Thomas came back to stay for a while. He was rested and ready to play. So play, we did!
Always, ALWAYS, take time to play!
