My granddaughter and her second cousin got together last week and all seemed to go well as they chased each other around the room, giggling and laughing as they ran. That is until he caught her and accidentally pushed her into the wall. I could tell that it hurt and it took a few minutes of mommy cuddles to calm her down. The two cousins continued to play but the age difference of two years clearly affected how they played. My granddaughter is four and her cousin is two. She was fascinated with his computer game and he didn’t want her to play with it. He liked her stuffed toy but preferred to throw it around. I’m sure as they get older they’ll have more in common. Time will tell.
I’ve chosen pumpkins and gourds for my subject matter this week. Of course I couldn’t keep it to one photo. On our way home from closing the cottage last week we stopped at a local farmer’s pumpkin sale. Not only did he have pumpkins but to be different from Walmart he was also offering a large variety of gourds. Now gourds are not edible but they make for fine decorations inside and outside your home. We really appreciated all the effort he made to make a creative and beautiful displays of his products.
