Making Friends

I told Shad to have her back by lunchtime, by 12:30 at the latest. And when they rolled in at 1:15, they had this story…

Shad and Sophie went to Mount Pisgah Arboretum (where we got married) just to walk around and hike.

 

 

But they ran into a work party that was working on laying down new bark, etc. Sophie asked if she could help and of course, they took her up on it. Sophie always finds fun in working and being around people.

The man on the tractor is Theodore and he was the one who organized the party. After working and driving the tractor around, Theodore told Sophie that it was his birthday and asked if she would like to come to his party. So Sophie’s work paid off, she got to hang out with new friends AND get birthday cake!

 

 

Pretty typical Sophie and I wasn’t mad that she was late.

Sophie’s Fair Entry

Sophie announced that she wanted to enter something in the fair this year. So we found a category in which she could compete — A flower arrangement in a teacup. 

So Sophie and I went to the Goodwill to buy a pretty teacup and we walked through the neighborhood and picked one flower out of each neighbor’s yard (It is not as terrible as it sounds).

This is the final product. She did not win, but I think that was due to the untrue belief that she got too much adult help. She did it herself and hers was the best (I can say that objectively). I mean, a bunch of roses got a ribbon, what’s that about?

Sophie Stories

I don’t have any pictures right now, that’s Shad’s job, he has the computer and fast internet connection. But, as the Mommy, I have stories.

Sophie is getting so big. She can now ride her bike without training wheels. She rides around and around the driveway. I remember doing the same thing for hours, it’s a five year old’s first taste of freedom, and she shows no signs of giving it up.
