A new-since-spring friend from school teaches in the early childhood division, and a week or so ago she was visiting my office and I spoke of our interest in kitchens, wooden vs. plastic. And she brightened up and said that she had a wooden kitchen that her son had outgrown and really we would be doing her a favor to take it!
We picked it up today and, by golly, it is the cutest kitchen ever.
Of course we would. Our other young grandson, Eli, is a bundle of unspent energy. It would be just the thing for him. When we went to Carol and Ana's for the pick-up, we were dazzled by the pristine condition of both the kitchen and the horse, and I, in particular, thought the latter had a bit of a Swedish look about it.
It is just a matter of days until both boys are here. I predict that their older cousins will join Nate at the stove and Eli will put a few dozen miles on the horse. What a lovely and generous thing for Carol to do!
