Hope for the Future

Children are the world's most valuable resource and its best hope for the future.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy, American president (1917-1963)

I sat amazed watching a two-year-old use an Ipad, learning her numbers, shapes and animals. Although it's a cliche nevertheless it's the truth: she knows far more than I ever did at her age. I could only sense that she'll go on to accomplish great things. I'm excited for her; I'm excited for the future.

And I'm thrilled to meet her little brother, the newest member of the family, who will no doubt charm the world with those eyes and that grin. He's a keeper!

He's an alert little fellow and seemed quite taken with his quilt -- particularly the green elephant that smiled on this blog a few months ago.

He really loves his quilt. He has so much fun rolling around on it and looking at all the colourful animals. Thank you so much!
