Looking Forward to . . .

This is what I have to look forward to, with the spring coming, with Marion and Henry becoming even closer friends, and with the world opening up to them. These are the days I'll remember, the days that make me cry from their beauty, their fond memory. This is life.

The Wisdom of Scouts

Every time I put sugar on my cereal (which isn't that often, only when I have Grape Nuts) the same memory goes through my mind. At Boy Scout camp in the morning, one of my good friend's older brother, Brett, was standing next to me as I put sugar on my cereal, and then milk. I said something like "shoot, all the sugar went to the bottom". To which he replied, "That's why you always pour your milk before you put the sugar on, that way it sticks to the top."

I remember thinking, "Wow, he's so wise. There must be hundreds of these kinds of living-wisdom things that I don't know yet."

I was probably eight years old, and he was eleven or so.

I still put my sugar on first.

Marion Has A Goat

Who knew it was possible for a less-than three year old to own a goat? Well, as it turns out, Marion is the proud owner of a goat, who will be raised at Grandma Chicken's (my mom) farm. If I remember correctly, the proceeds from the sale of this goat when it's older will be put aside for Marion (college, car, trip to goat-city? I forget which).

Not many girls around here can say they have a goat of their own. Quite a lucky girl. The first question she asked when she saw the picture was, "Where's Henry's goat?" There's a goat on the way for Henry, it just has to be born.

Marion chose to name it Amalthea, which is the name of the unicorn in The Last Unicorn, when she's turned into a woman. She also said, "Now I sing a goat song; This goat is for me and Henry, the doggies have two feet, and the kitties have two feet, but not this year, cus I have two socks."

Last (Unicorn) Pancake

Marion is really into the movie The Last Unicorn. It could be because it's a great story, or it could be because it's the first and only movie she's watched.

This is our breakfast:
