One of the best things about our new home is the backyard. Just look at these fantastic trees.
And a birdbath that has Kylie quite intrigued.
And then there is this interesting beauty in our side yard.
For those of you who are interested, I posted just a few pictures of our home on Flickr. You can see them by clicking here. There are notes on the Flickr pictures. Just move your mouse over the opened picture to see them.
Kylie is settling in so well. She tells me several times a day that she likes our new home. She doesn't ask for our old home. She does tell me many times that she missed me while we were apart which is sweet to hear. I've noticed some new funny things such as:
1. She likes to say, "Oh dear. Where is mother dear?" "Oh dear. Where is mother dear?" Over and over. Not sure where she picked this one up.
2. She loves her many decks of flashcards. Some of them are also games like "Go Fish". I just love it when she says, "Wild Card" and "Oh just the instructions".
3. She really wants to make me laugh. The other day we were driving to the store and Kylie saw a man dressed up like a chicken advertising a restaurant. She said, "Oh Gosh! That's a chicken! I can NOT believe it!" Well I cracked up. We rocked the car we were laughing so hard. Now, she says, "That's a chicken" several times a day and starts laughing to see if she can get me to laugh too.
4. Her cousin Emily taught her parts of the Wiggle Worm song. (By the way, this isn't Emily on the video; this is just the only link I could find with the song.) Kylie now thinks that one of Karen's pillows is a wiggle worm. She asks us to sing the song while she sits on her worm all the time.
My darling Karen left for week-long job in Utah, her last engagement before she starts her new full-time job. I really worried about putting her on the plane for this trip. She is so tired from all the past few weeks activities. I just pray that this job isn't too taxing and that she can get a bit of rest. She works so hard for our family. I'm so grateful for all she does.
