Huh!?


Check out that face!!! Doesn't it look like she has a question to ask!? Well, I can pretty much assure you that she does. Lately she just rattles 'em off by the dozen! And it is no longer just "Why, why, WHY!?" Now it is "What is dirt made of?" "Trees and fwowers are living things...is dirt a living thing?" "Is lip gwoss a living thing? It lives in the store!"
And don't even get her started on volcanos! They are her new obsession. She even wants Papa to take her to Washington (he has family there) to see one...but she is quick to say "But if it erupts while we are there, we will have to leave Washington quickwee!" The girl wants to know ALL of the specifics. Finally I had to tell her that I don't have all the answers and I had Jay stop by the bookstore on his way home yesterday and pick up a BOOK on volcanos. She has had me read several parts of it to her over and over again. She can now tell you all about 'em. The red hot magma travels up the vents to the earth's crust and comes out as lava...and then her hands go over her mouth as she says "it's really, REALLY hot! That's NOT good!" I'm so glad she is starting school in the fall...her teachers are gonna LOVE her. And, I'm sure they will be much better at handling all those questions!
*On another note, thank you all for your sweet, loving, wonderful comments on my last post. It is so nice to have your support and shared excitement as we embark on adoption number 2. I promise to keep ya'll posted as things progress.*

We have one of those question kids too! That's awesome and yes her teachers will love her b/c of it. When I read you bought her a book on volcanoes that so reminded me of what have been doing with J. Nothing better than watching them learn. Love the picture of her - I love them all tho' don't I? I've been wanting to send you an email but with my surprise, I've gotten backed up. Will catch up now that the fam is gone.

Oh I love that sweet Lily-bug. Volcanoes are so cool and what fun to learn about them. Maybe she can teach me a thing or two.

Hugs,
Jonni

Thanks for your sweet remarks on Daleea's blog for the auction! I have "seen" you around but I have NO idea why I never made it out here.

You daughter is adorable! I agree - one smart little cookie :D

BTW- You in RO, MI! Small, small world, we moved South from Troy! WE are in MI about 8 times a year as hubby's family lives there :D (and much to my dismay) may be moving back as the mothership is calling us home.

Look forward to stopping by more often :D
Ladybug hugs,
;D
