Boy, it has been a long time since I've written!! (yes, Jo, that was just for you!)
In our church, whenever someone has a baby, three families each bring one meal to the parents of the new little one. So, one family brought us a delicious Dinner Salad. It's a salad that has everything on it-from chicken to cantaloupe. But that's beside the point. The point in this is, the family brought the salad, and all it toppings, in a cardboard box. A box big enough to catch a certain little girl's eye:
The hiding place soon became a boat:
Which gave way to a house:
|Ellie un-tapes the bottom of the box.|
|Ellie in her "house"|
This house is pretty plain...I know...crayons!!
This little girl reminds me so much of Christina Katerina and the Box by Patricia Lee Gauch. This was a book that belonged to my mother as a girl, and one she frequently read to us. So, I read it to Ellie.
Who would think a piece of cardboard could be such a treasure?
Until Next Time,
