:: Canada is a Country ::

Last week our friends Tara and Josh Jensen came from Calgary, Alberta, Canada to visit for the week. Analise was eagerly anticipating our 'company'.

A: "Mom. When is our company coming?"
Me: "They are coming tomorrow."
A: "Oh great! I can't wait to see them. What's these names again?"
Me: "Tara and Josh. They are from Canada."
A: "Canada is a country? Like Germany?"
Me: "Yes. Canada is a country like Germany."
A: "Oh. yes."

We had a great week visiting and just spending some quality time together. Josh and Tara decided to bring a tent and 'camp' in our back yard. It gave them some of their own space although Analise didn't give them much breathing room. Here you can see her and Tara playing in the tent together...Every waking moment she wanted to be near them. First thing in the morning, every morning, we had the following conversation:

A: "Mom. I want to go outside and sing 'Jesus Loves Me' to that guy and that girl."
Me: "Not right now Analise, it is too early, and their names are Josh and Tara."
A: "I want to sing to that guy and that girl. They want to hear me sing."
Me: "Yes, I am sure they do, but not at 6:30 am."

We headed down to Phil's Fish Market for their famous Cioppino, and as usual it was delicious!Our time together was really special. Analise was as close to them as possible...all day, every day...getting them ready for kids of their own...A: "Mom. I want to go to Canada. It is a country like Germany. Can we go to there?"

I hope she will teach her cousin Knox to be so clever and endearing. ♥
