Dear Miss Dinah,
This morning we went to the grocery store. At home, they have shopping carts where the place you sit had steering wheels, and the there is a cart attached to the front. Well, here in Tennessee, they have full sized shopping carts, and then a whole little child-sized car attached to the front! Now, as fun as this is -- and it is soooo much fun -- it is incredibly hard to steer. In the stuffing isle for instance, we knocked over a few cans.
So, the second time we went today, I decided to get a regular cart, which later I realized was probably a bad idea. Every time you saw another little child driving their car(t), you pointed and got very, very sad. I was explaining this to the check-out lady just as a car(t) pulled up behind us :-)
Aunt Julie had day-care duty today, so we went and played with the group for a little while. All the babies were about 1 yr. old and seem to get along well. Aunt Julie and Uncle Jeremiah go to a school where all of the students (about 120) are preparing to live overseas, and many of the students have young children. Needless to say, they get to know each other very well, almost like family, as they live, work, and study together day in and day out.
Most of the time, you just smile your little smile, and take it all in stride :-)
I love you,
