My dear, dear friend Sara is so kind as to be my vacation home whenever I need a break from Toledo. We go when John is on AHEC, we go when John is at conferences, and we go (with John) at Thanksgiving, and we've gone whenever John is in Honduras. This year was no exception. And, as a special bonus, this year the weather was delightful.
Joe, her hospitable husband, was raking up all the dead grass to fill in the gaps with new grass seed. It looked a thankless task, and I was grateful to not be the one to do it, but Mimi thought it looked like fun and wanted to help.Livi and Sara's Libby are only 6 weeks apart in age, and they are absolutely delightful friends. They can play all day long, entertaining each other and only occasionally tormenting the younger girls. Libby was showing Liv how to play T-ball. I don't think that athletic prowess is our real strong point. We'll work on our bat aim later.
Sara and I talked and laughed and cut up fruit for a Young Women's activity and walked in her mall (nicer, much nicer than Southwyck) and went fabric shopping (such a fun store we found) and cut out pieces to make darling outfits for the girls and sewed and talked some more and watched Psych. I'm so lucky to have such a delightful friend. (John had my camera out of the country, so these pictures are from Sara, too.)
