One morning at breakfast we mentioned that we were going to go to a playground and both kids were elated! Jancsi was ready to pull on his boot over his pj's and go that second... Lily made the comment "Do hair get dressed!" I just had to laugh as I thought about the difference between boys and girls and how we were getting ready to enter this new domain in a few short weeks!
The kids were my little chicken helpers for the week, and Lily enjoyed lending a helping hand with feeding and egg collecting. I think she broke at least one egg per day. : ) They would walk up the long hill with their bucket and chicken feed and they each got to carry an egg back down.
The year we lived together built relationships that will last through the years. Of that I am certain. It was fun watching the kids just pick up where they left off as if nothing had changed.
