Yesterday Lily gave me a little chuckle. So we were sitting at the kitchen table eating a snack and drinking hot chocolate in adult-sized mugs with little floaty marshmellows on top. Lily and Schaeffer both wanted a straw to see if they could suck up the marshmellows through the straw. Schaeffer took the opportunity to make a mess with his hot chocolate, marshmellows, and straw. I said, "Schaeffer, please don't make a mess. Look. You are getting hot chocolate all over the table." Lily then explained to me, "Mom, it's okay. It's just a mistake. Mistakes are good. We learn from our mistakes."
Back in January when we were all sick as dogs, and when Lily was feeling much better than the rest of us, Granddad and Grandmama took Lily on a hike with her two eldest cousins. Check out the photos here. She had a blast!
