She Knows How to Get Her Point Across

Yesterday, Izzy and I were outside enjoying the gorgeous weather that we've been having. She is truly a country girl. Has managed her first skinned knee, scratched up her other leg, and has a couple of ant and mosquito bites. I seriously think she would stay outside the entire time she was awake if I would let her. :)

Yesterday, we were outside and she was piddling and doing her thing. I was trying to get some squash plants in the ground. She walked over to me and took my hand. I put down my trowel and followed her lead. She walked us to her wagon, opened the door, climbed in and sat down. She looked at me and said, "go! go! go! go!" Needless to say we had ourselves a nice walk yesterday afternoon!

Gotta go get the rest of the squash in the ground! :)

Jenny, I started following your caringbridge site when someone asked me to pray for your Catie in December 06. I had just lost my husband to cancer on Friday, October 13, 2006. My only daughter is a medulloblastoma survivor, diagnosed at the age of 15 months. She will graduate from high school in May.

I love to read your posts, your grieving experience has helped me tremendously in my own grief, and your new posts on the growth and development stages of Izzy take me back to when my own Katie was that age.

Thank you so much for sharing.

Oh Jenny! I so wish that I was in the "country"! I am about 20 minutes from Atlanta and it is just city, city, city. My baby girl is 8 1/2 months old and she loves outside as well. Continue to write...I enjoy reading about you and Miss Iz. Always thinking about Catiebug. Love and hugs from Lawrenceville, GA. Tracy
