You know how when your kids ask to "make" something your instinct is to say "no way!" Well this time I said "sure, why not?" Morgan wanted make a video camera and play news girl. She covered her cereal box with aluminum foil; added her "eye piece" (really a aluminum foil covered toilet paper roll). Next she asked me to help her cut out 2 big M's and a smallish 47; her news channel and call signs! She then started interviewing us. All the time I am thinking of all the things I should be doing. Then I thought of how fast time has flown by. How my little girl is 8! How could that be?
Our Home Teacher came by to see us just after she finished making this camera. Barry is such a great man. He gives a wonderful lesson each month; one that applies perfectly for our family. When Morgan sees it is Barry she asks him to wait a minute before starting. He agrees to. She runs off and quickly returns with a microphone (Hannah Montana) and her camera. She then says Barry would you mind if I interview you today while you give the lesson. He says that he would be happy to. The only stipulation is that Morgan needs to ask questions about the lesson. Which she does. How many people would be willing to do that?
Today I am glad that I took the time to just enjoy Morgan and her lovely little self!
