Special Delivery Packages
Deep heavy sighs and a chuckle from the mailman found me trying to UN tie Jordan's package and I scolded him for not playing nice with his sister. This continued for YEARS...even when he was 4, Del taught Jordan these magic rope tricks that after months and months of practice, Jordan was pretty good. And when we went to Aspen Grove that summer for family reunion, Jordan got up in front of hundred's of other guests and performed his adorable tricks. I found him so naive and brave to do that, but everyone clapped for him and gave him the encouragement he needed to show them all he had been taught. It was a very fond memory.
Now, it's Emerson's turn. This rope gets dragged around all over the backyard when Emerson is out there. He loves tying up trees, and chairs, and his hands, and grandma's hands. I'm watching for the day when the front door bell rings, and I'm pointed to the mailbox where I'll find Shirley tied up, ready to be sent out with the mailman.
It's only a matter of time.
