Madeline is ready to be a big sister. I know I have said this before but I am reminded of it constantly by things that she says and does. Today, she was spending a lot of time in her room without making much noise. Being curious about a quiet child in another room, I asked her what she was doing and she replied. "I am practicing being a big sister and cleaning my room because I will have to clean Rebekah's room." I cannot ask for more. Tonight she is enjoying her 2nd dinner with daddy, (he came home after we ate and she did not want him to eat alone so she had another dinner), and she was telling him that he needs to go to school to learn how to talk Chinese to Rebekah. Well, I was working on the computer and she exclaimed, "Mama you need to go for daddy to learn chinese." It is not a real website but it was interesting to me that she knew how to say a web address correctly.

rain, rain, glorious rain

We are finally getting RAIN in Fort Worth. So far we have 1.20 inches of rain today. What is better, our mid August temperature is is 74, WOW! We are expected to get rain throughout tonight and tomorrow. We have had light rain showers since Thursday last week but nothing significant. Our grass is green now and I had nothing to do with it. OH BEAUTIFUL RAIN.
