Ellen, who is one of Emma’s favorite cousins, was watching her for an hour this morning. One of Emma’s favorite things to do at the Waters house is pick carrots out of their vegetable garden. The Waters have an amazing vegetable garden, unlike the flop of one I attempted this year; I’ll have to get Aunt Susie’s help next year on mine. Here are some pictures of the fun filled hour she had with Ellie. Looking at these pictures makes me realize how time goes by so fast, I can’t believe she has learned to swim this summer! She is growing up way to fast. It makes me want to enjoy and treasure every special moment I have with her. I need to be continually reminded that she is what I am doing. Reading a story with her or listening to her tell me one is just as important as keeping my house in order. Besides with a girl like Emma, how could I not want to listen to her stories, she is such a lil character.
