Sand in my pocket

There's still sand in my pocket and in my shoes.

Twinsies.

We spent the day with Mommal, to get her nails done, to lunch, to the lake, and to Poppal's grave. We take a rock to him every time we go. It was one of his favorite places. And all the rocks from before are still there. Even the one with googly eyes.

She drew hearts in the sand.

She claimed that the water was going to wash all the winter away.

  9. Lovely, Steph. Ivy's words reminded me of the NEEDTOBREATHE song washed by the water.

  11. Those littles sure know how to live life. I wonder when/why/how we forget that. What a blessing that we have them to reteach us.
