Ellery was going to visit Grandma Vi and said in anticipation, "Mom, you know what I like about going to Grandma's house?"

"No, what?" I replied.

Ellery's eyes looked dreamily off in the distance and her voice took on a tone of wonderment as if she were anticipating a trip to Fairyland.  "She never makes me clean!" she marveled.  "I always make a mess and I never have to clean it up!"


  1. Seriously, this girl has so much in common with her cousin Seth.

  2. Too bad they won't get to know each other. That cousin relationship is a fun one when they're close enough to enjoy it.

  3. Yes, that is too bad. I think we may ultimately wind up living in Salt Lake City, but I don't know that we'll ever be back in the Northwest to live. I do miss it there, though. It will always be "home" to me.
