As most of you know, I have wonderful neighbors, but certainly heading the list is my friend Karey.
Karey and I share a love of needlepoint, cooking and family. Her daughter, Allison, and Dots have been best friends since they were two, and Karey and I started our Cooking Club together four years ago.
Vivian loves to go over to Karey's and play with Allison's brother, Mark, and their family's delightful, smart and well-behaved dog, Ladybug. Vivian refers to Karey as "Mark's mom."
Today when Vivian got off the bus, she immediately opened her backpack and pulled out a piece of paper.
"I color this for Mark's mom," she told me, as she headed down the block toward Karey's house and not ours.
I caught up to Vivian and asked her if she knew Mark's mom's real name.
"Allison's mom," she answered without missing a beat.

I unintentionally contaminated all of the pictures on my blog when I changed my privacy settings on Flickr. I am working backwards to correct them all, but it is quite a tedious procedure! If you encounter a post with error messages from Flickr where the pictures should be, then I haven't gotten to that post yet. Please let me know and I will update it immediately. Thanks for your patience!
