Where has the time gone?! It seems like just yesterday when she was running around the house in a tutu and having tea parties with her baby doll and teddy bears.
The tutu is gone and her baby dolls have been replaced with a delightful group of girl friends, but she still enjoys a tea party.
The girls painted a bisque tea cup as my husband kept the tea flowing.
“Lastly, she pictured to herself how this same little sister of hers
would, in the after-time, be herself a grown woman; and how she would
keep, through all her riper years, the simple and loving heart of her
childhood: and how she would gather about her other little children, and
make their eyes bright and eager with many a strange tale, perhaps even
with the dream of Wonderland of long ago: and how she would feel with
all their simple sorrows, and find a pleasure in all their simple joys,
remembering her own child-life, and the happy summer days.”
