Working hard

Two things I loved about Marian today:
*Working on a recycling craft project..."Mom, do you have an empty plastic bottle and some tin foil?" Why, yes! Yes I do...
(okay, this photo is from yesterday, but she worked on it today, too. That's her craft desk in the background. Serious work done there.)

*"Will you get me your wallet? [emptying...] Don't worry [confidential laugh], you know I put all of this back. I'm not one of those c-ray-zee kids who make a mess. It just I want to play store." Which evolved into writing out little money math problems for herself on the bottom of her medication schedule and this, after I wandered off doing my own whatever: "Mom, you want to see the stairs I made?" Yup, and take a picture!

Love the smile and the stairs Marian! You look so sweet. I can see why you are loving the place Val... someone cooking for you everyday and spending all day with your little munchkin. The pic on the flyer is adorable. I can see why he picked the two of you.

Marian you look like a little angel. You are a true lucky ducky to have those really cool hats. I hope you're feeling as good as you look.

Marian and Valerie, I loved your picture on the flyer! What cute girls you are! Marian, those stairs are so cool! I like how you made it into a spiral staircase -(my favorite kind). I'm glad you have such a nice room to stay in at Ronald McDonald House. This will be a fun memory for you. I miss you both and am glad things are going well. Love to you both.

whoops, that last comment was from me, but I pushed the wrong button and didn't get my name on it. I still need internet lessons. Love, Grandma Donna
