When we lived in Iowa we were always traveling between my parents and my sister's home so it was natural when Beli asked, "a donde vamos?" She wanted to know where we were going. I would say. "Grandma's house" or "your Aunt's house" depending which house we were staying at. Now that we are in Colorado, Beli wakes up every morning and says, "this is my house!" not once or twice but several times a day. I reply, "yes Beli this is your house, do you like it?" and she beams with happiness as she replies"yes!"
Our home is perfect for our needs. It's fully furnished (a great find since we're on a tight budget), it has a backyard for Beli to run around, we are in close proximity to the city's park and trails, and we have the nicest landlords. We were welcomed with a handwritten note and a batch of fresh baked chocolate chip cookies and a carton of milk!
On Friday we spent the day outdoors basking in the sun as we planted flowers and herbs. Beli chose most of the flowers, the pink ones (geraniums) are hers, the yellow ones (pansies) are daddy's.
The following day Beli found all the plants indoors. I explained that it was too cold outside.
It snowed last night!
