Ellie's been a bundle of smiles lately- from when she gets up to (almost) when she goes to bed!
That is, when she's not putting on her serious zoning face...
It's been wonderful to have more interaction with her, even if it isn't verbal yet.
Pete came and visited for awhile.
As did Jamie- it was like an EMU reunion! I bought 20 lbs. of green coffee beans off of Jaime and Evelyn that they had grown on their farm in Nicaragua (http://5tucanes.wordpress.com/). Jaime was still as upbeat and energetic as always- it makes my morning cup of coffee so much more valuable to have been grown and brought by an old friend.
The Castles came over and we gave everyone instruments!
Another lovely sunset walk with my ladies :)
