All By Herself

Last week on Friday, we had our last playgroup. We all went to my sister's and walked down to the beach area at her in-laws. We were lucky enough to have her FIL home who offered to take the older kids tubing. JiaLi enjoyed riding in the boat with Mommy and watching Edward on the tube. When Edward was finished, we were getting ready to get off the boat and JiaLi began to cry because she wanted a turn. I honestly don't think her want was because she "wanted" to ride the tube but more her brother did it so she "wanted" to do it too. She did it all by her self. The boat was kept nice and slow for her and she was a little uncertain at first but as the boat got faster, her smile became larger. Unfortunately I caught her with her eyes closed. We are so lucky to have family so close. Did I mention Daddy is building a treehouse? Daddy has been talking about doing this since we moved to our current home and Joseph for an art thing at school made a drawing of a tree fort that gave Daddy the urge to do it:) Now, Daddy is not an official builder but he has built some structures in his life with his Dad so he knows a little bit but it's fun that he is not an official builder and that he is just doing it with the kids. They are loving it and ask every day if they can work on it:) If you click, you can see their expressions better.

Oh I always wanted a treehouse when I was a little girl. We watch Boz the Bear and he lives in an awesome treehouse with a huge slide!I can't believe she let a boat pull her by herself...what a big girl!
