Avelyn is friends with two sweet little boys named Caleb and Daniel. She has so much fun playing with them because boy-time means rough-housing, tag, exploring, and mildly aggressive wrestling. Every now and again we’ll take the kids down to the beach where they play on a huge log of driftwood, throw rocks for the dog to fetch, and eat muffins.
We haven’t seen Caleb and Daniel this week because they’ve been home with the Chicken Pox. Avelyn has missed them and she wanted to phone them to see how they were doing. Their phone conversation went like this:
Avelyn: Hi, Caleb. Do you still have spots?
Caleb: Yes. I have one on my pee-pee. Maybe I should come over and show you.
And yesterday Avelyn asked about the boys again and said, “Do they still have Chicken Pot Pie?”
Friends are the best.
