While I was looking at the book section (just in case), Elijah was trying to get my attention. "Look, Mama, this would be appropriate for you," he kept telling me. Finally I took a look at what he was holding.
I can't bear housework?!? Does does Elijah really think that this is appropriate for me, or is he just teasing? I do on occasion neglect housework for more interesting things like blogging, gardening, and playing with Legos, but I didn't think that I was a complainer! How do things appear through Elijah's eyes, though? I will have to ponder this sometime.
After the thrift store, we went on to the birthday party. It was Julia's birthday. Julia is about Elijah's age, and is one of his best friends. She's the one on the right.
Elijah was doing his best cowboy imitation. He even had a lasso.
It was quite nice to see all 10+ little ones playing together. We have quite a few young children here (and more on the way!), with Elijah and Julia being the oldest of the newest generation, if that makes sense.
Well, as the photo above illustrates, Elijah is really getting into the whole Texas thing, and so am I. But in order to be a real southerner, I need to learn how to make sweet tea. Anyone want to share their recipe? Does it matter what type of tea I use? How many teabags to a gallon of water? How much sugar? Your help is appreciated.
