ANYWAY, the tale is of two very different boys, one named Benaiah, and the other named Justin. Or Mr. Husky and Mr. Slim. Or Mr. Messy and Mr. Neat. Or Mr. Push the Boundaries and Mr. Peacekeeper. They are like night and day but they get along so well. Justin is literally 1/2 the size of Benaiah, although I think Justin should be hitting a growth spurt soon. So, we pulled out the size 10 pants (yeah!) but unfortunately, Benaiah was a solid "husky" by age 11 and Justin isn't. Thus, the pants aren't going to fit right. I somewhere saved some "slims" from a hand me down bag, but they might be a bigger size. Again, we have "enough," especially in jeans, but I'd like Justin to have the gympants he likes, too.

Then supper, baths, clean up, etc. Full day, but fruitful.
|Cheesecake for breakfast!|
|Finally, I'm in a country that understands that grits are white!|
|Just playing by himself wile the others do the same. Keturah was playing Barbies and Justin was reading.|
|It's been awhile since this track was up on a door post, but Abishai loved getting the cars up as high as he could to let them fall down.|
|Interesting artwork at the library from a group that makes cloth dolls. They were based on essentials to life like water, fire, air, etc.|
