I wanted to “officially” note this precious, precocious act of kindness that I witnessed Anna perform…
to go into her “permanent record.” ;)
On Thursday, April 1, Anna and her Mommy, and Michelle and Sophie and “Miss Kim”
took Michelle’s van to Michelle and Maria’s plot of land down by the river “rented”
from Jeff City to garden. Miss Kim came to “garden sit” two and ½ year olds Anna and Sophie
so their Moms’ could till the ground and start planting their vegetable garden and I could enjoy the time
with all of them on a beautiful day.
Michelle packed a bright, primary colored, red, blue, yellow
mini-tent for the kidlets to play in and get some relief from the sun.
Michelle also brought along a portable potty which worked out great for
the little ones.
When we arrived at the plot I (Miss Kim) had given each of the four a plastic Easter egg with
three little chocolate candies and a written blessing inside. Easter was April 4 this year.
Anna was skilled at taking the colored foil off of the chocolates. Sophie handed one
then another of hers to me to unwrap for her.
Michelle set up the tent and I had a camping chair near the tent.
Anna and Sophie played together harmoniously. Anna was going back and forth
to Michelle’s van which was parked nearby. I was following Anna when she went to the van.
I think she’d eaten the candies from her Easter egg, but she found a Hershey’s
Crunch chocolate egg in the back of the van. She carried it
to the side door of the van, where she stood a minute and unwrapped it. Anna
then eased herself down the long step out of the van to the ground, walked about
15 feet over the Sophie, and gave the chocolate egg to her friend Sophie.
Love and peace,
