Dr. Cooley

It looks like we may have a doctor in the family and I am not talking about the PhD type of doctor. For months now Eleanor has loved playing doctor. She received a doctor kit from Christmas and can be found wearing a stethoscope around her neck numerous times a day. When we have playdates with our friends she always asks her friends to play doctor. Each Sunday night after our small group meets, Eleanor and her buddy Seth play doctor with Christine and Reiner, a young married couple from our group. She absolutely loves to play doctor and I am glad to know we may have a doctor in the family to take care of me in my old age!

Big Trucks

A couple of weekends ago we headed out with our friends to a Big Truck exhibit in a nearby village. Here are a few pictures of the fun we had.

Today in the car I was looking for something to keep Eleanor busy. I decided to "interview" her. I asked her about her favorite things. These are her responses:


Color: Blue, Red and Yellow like the flowers
Show: Shrek
Song: Old MacDonald
Food: Her first answer was "azert" (dessert) but then she said broccoli (truth is she LOVES broccoli)
Bible Story: Mary and Jofef (Joseph) and Snow White (I think that story was left out of my Bible)

I plan to ask her these questions periodically just to see how her answers change.
