On Saturday, I picked up this little car at Goodwill. We’ve driven it all over town these past few days. The girls think it’s the best thing ever. (They really do!)
Today we went on two long walks with the toy car.
On the first walk, Violet pushed Ellie. Violet felt so grown up! Ellie was so excited to “Go!” (as she says it) in her little car:
Getting a book at the Little Free Library:
On the second walk, Ginger (7) pushed Violet (4) for almost two hours! I was behind them pushing Ellie (17 months) in the stroller. Paprika (9) walked with us, too. We were all happy to get outside and get some fresh air and exercise.
I was so happy My Little Jelly Belly was not jealous of her big sister getting to ride in her car. Ellie was quite happy in the stroller:
Ginger and Violet love to pretend they are twins. They do everything together, even eat out of the same bowl and drink from the same cup (different straws). They sleep holding each other. They never argue and can play together for hours and hours and hours (and hours)….
They always say they are twins, which is so interesting (they are 2 1/2 years apart in age). They have a very deep soul connection – and share a very special friendship.
I don’t know if I’ve written about it before, but they share a large birthmark on their backs/hips. Their birthmarks fit together like a butterfly. It’s like they were split from one person into two people. It’s very strange, I know!
The girls played outside for hours today. Ginger is so much happier when she has the freedom to be outdoors climbing trees and doing daredevil stunts. I had to tell her to slow down a few times when I saw her playing on the swings. She knows how to make her mama nervous:
Oh, and last but not least – Ellie is so obsessed with her car, she wants to be in it all the time.
I was helping Paprika with her Math lesson today and put on Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood for Ellie to watch. She usually will never sit still for the television for more than maybe 15 seconds. But today I guess she liked the novelty of being at the “Drive-In” – she watched five whole minutes!
What can I say, I’ll take what I can get! Ha!
