Today Violet asked if she could put together one of her Birthday Lego Sets. I told her what I’ve always told Jacob, you need to follow the instructions and make sure you have a place to keep all the pieces. So there she was for some of the afternoon, and late into the night (There was an unplanned nap in between) working away. Trying to finish her Lego Friends Camper.  I have to say it’s been eye-opening to watch how differently she works then her older brother. Not better, or worse just different.

Ruby and I have an evening routine, as the night winds down we head out to the park to play some catch before heading for a long evening walk. Tonight I headed out without her. While I was gone Melissa snapped today’s picture of the day of Ruby looking for me. I’m sure she was wondering why I didn’t take her with me.
