New Shoes

This week, Eila had the great pleasure of going shoe shopping and getting a new pair of flip-flops, because a young girl canNOT have too many pairs of flip-flops. Well, after returning home, she asked to go to a different store - the clothes store - several times. I finally asked her why she so badly needed to go shopping for clothes right now. Of course, Miss Eila replied "I need a new outfit to match my new flip-flops. These clothes just don't match them right. So, can we go now?"

Never Dress Myself Again

Eila has been testing the limits, especially at rest times, but at many others times as well. She has had to have a lot of practice sessions at listening and obeying since she opened the gate and let Josiah out of the backyard, went into the laundry room without supervision and spread reeds everywhere, wrote on her new dress with a non-washable marker, screamed and screamed when put to bed and finally emptied all the drawers of her dressers and pulled the dresser on top of her instead of taking a nap.

Upon realizing the seriousness of the dresser situation (in which I praise God no one was hurt at all!) she spoke of what she thought the consequences of her actions would be: "I'll never be able to get dressed by myself again. I'll never wear clothes on my own. I won't be able to drive cars ever again. It was an accident. I'm sorry. I'll never be able to dress myself again."

Amish Friendship Bread

After 10 days of mushing the bag, Eila made some delicious bread and cannot stop eating it. She had so much fun squishing it up each day, and thoroughly enjoyed mixing it with Josiah, but nothing beats the taste. Eila requests it for breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, and snack. "Can I have some Amish Friendship Bread Cake, please?"
