I love my little farmgirl so much.
She’s starting to get interested in space, planets, the mechanics of how things works, and so on.
She helps out a lot around here. She doesn’t always want to, but she always does a great job.
She just got done washing a box of tomatoes I am going to cut up for sauce.
Her usual disposition is cheerful and content.
She has her moments (she’s seven, after all – and anyhow, don’t we all?), but she bounces back to her usual self pretty quickly.
She is easily pleased by simple things.
As a country girl, she doesn’t encounter a whole lot of glamor, but she loves to dress up and wear pretty things. It’s as innate as my son loving everything with an engine, real or pretend. It’s Darwinian!
From that standpoint, a pair of sunglasses is pretty much as glamorous an accessory for her as it gets. My friend Tegan stopped by today (more about it in a later post), and gave Josie her older pair.
Thank you, Tegan! Love you!
Because we lead a relatively simple life and try to show our children that much joy is to be found in small things and modest pleasures, Josie was utterly thrilled with Tegan’s gift.
I think she really rocks the style, don’t you?
