The Math Whiz and the Girl Who Barks

I enjoyed granddaughters at my house yesterday for lunch. Have I mentioned how much I enjoy those girls?

Highlights from yesterday:

Maria and I took the girls for a walk. Elise listened for neighborhood dogs all the way, very serious about barking back to them. I tried to teach her to also tweet at the birds but she really just wanted to speak with the dogs.

Cordelia wanted to talk about how many children I had. She named my three kids (now adults). She then named herself and Elise and told me they were my grandkids. Then, little 3 1/2 year old math whiz that she is said, "You have 5 kids because 3 plus 2 is 5." Who can argue with that?

And now, I am sharing photos of those beautiful grandkids, just because I can.

Megan spoke fluent dog and cat well before she spoke English!

Ha! We thought Bumblebee taught Cordelia to read as well, but she picked up on the whining...not the most desirable but it was kind of cute. With Elise it is quite entertaining as she does a little leg kick thing with each bark. She's very, very serious about her barking. Kids are so funny!
