On Tuesday, I took the girls to see daddy at work since the unit was doing water bucket training (for putting out wildfires, etc.) at the local reservoir right up the street. We stopped and got Happy Meals and I packed their little chairs in the car -- they were in heaven!
So, about a week ago, I found a cool journal at the thrift store. On one side in had lines to write and on the other side, it was blank - to draw pictures, glue momentos, etc. I thought it would be a great start to get Nani journaling. After we got home, Nani was very excited about wanting to write in her journal about what she saw.
About an hour after we put her to bed, My Marine comes downstairs with her journal in his hand. Turns out she left it at the top of the stairs for us to see. I translated the story for you and included the picture she drew as well.....
"After school, I had to have some quiet time. When I got up, I had to see helicopter. Some times they hold buckets. Helicopters pick up the water and the fire comes out. And the smoke comes out from the bottom. Mr. Troy visits us. We eat Happy Meals. We got a toy. I had to get in the car. Mommy took pictures. They landed on the ground. Daddy came to see us. We went home."
Just made My Marine's heart melt!!!!
