Simple Joys

First of all, please click here to read Maria's blog from yesterday. She tells about the special visitor from Australia that we are all enjoying.


Technically Jennifer is not a relative, but she feels like one. We love her and we love when she visits here! We are enjoying her easy going, sweet self. When I look at her, especially her eyes, I also think of her beautiful mother, one of the most gentle people I ever knew. It enjoy remembering her. We hope sometime her parents can come here as well..or maybe we will make a trip to Australia! That would be a dream come true!

But for now...

Wednesday night we were all at an outdoor concert. Almost immediately Cordelia saw a couple of little girls up front. She did not hesitate to go up and introduce herself. There is nothing shy about that little girl anymore! She didn't mind that it was in front of good crowd. In fact, I think she rather enjoyed performing.


We all enjoyed the beauty of watching little girls just dance for the joy of dancing. I am still trying to learn how to use my new camera so my photos aren't great. Still, I think you can feel a bit of their fun little spirits as they whirled and twirled to the music. Please enjoy.








Maria said she noticed Cordy kind of pause the first time the crowd starting clapping for the musicians, wondering if maybe they were clapping for the dancers.  She did, however, graciously turn and also clap for the musicians.


And not to be left out, little Miss Elise had a few moves of her own.




It was a simple evening, loaded with simple pleasures.
