|I like this picture so much that we have it on our wall.|
Picking up seashells, while not a hard and fast family tradition, always adds to the experience.
. . . and, should you find a prime stick while looking for seashells? Well, so much the better!
This is Eliza. At about 9 months older than Heather, I've found her example to be an extremely helpful motivator. Why, just a few days ago I persuaded Heather to let me wash her hair in the bathtub without any tears or whimpering because, "That's how Eliza does it". (Which feat we witnessed first-hand while we were in Bear Lake.)
Worked like a charm.
Of course, to look at this, you'd assume that this girl does absolutely no whimpering or crying whatsoever, right?
(But, it's a small price to pay for all this joy, and a nearly limitless supply of such smiles.)
