Trying on guinea pigs, nurses and p-wincesses for size ...

Ella sat with Ginze the guinea pig on her lap in absolute rapture at the squeaking sounds the little creature was making.

She looked at me, (Kari) wide eyed and started to wiggle and twitch her nose like Ginze was, and then began to copy the little squeaks perfectly.

Every now and then she stopped and listened intently to the sound the guinea pig was making again, and then she would continue her own squeaks and songs....as if she were letting herself understand what it felt like to be a guinea pig for a moment in time.

Lola ran a hospital. All the patients came and felt very cared about and Lola knew just what to do to cure all these patients.

Beds were made up for everyone and long times of dreaming were prescribed for each of the patients.

Lola patiently described how much dreaming was needed for each patient and then made up medicine and put it at the end of the beds of the patients...everyone so quietly listened and made miraculous recoveries just at the times Lola said they would!

It was beautiful to watch Lola so sure of herself and her wisdom, and equally as beautiful to watch the other children be so trusting of her and her remedies!.....

One Liners...

My group walked into the barn and saw Danella and her group on Wednesday. Danella said hello to Monique who promptly answered, "I'm not Monique, My name is Ariel Snow-White Danielle P-wincess!"

Ah the wistful voice of Monique...."Oh, I'm all alone without my Pwince"............."My Pwince isn't coming!"...

Monique....."Put my glass slipper on Pwince Edwin" ordered Monique and promptly handed Angus her gumboot!

Lola chipped in with "You can put one on me too! and handed him a sneaker!
