Sophie and Emma enjoying being carted around in the pool by Jay, Sophie's Dad.
Jay and Martha had just adopted Sophie from China around the time we left Bozeman, and we first met her when Scott, Gage, Emma and I went back to Bozeman so Scott could defend his dissertation. She is a sweet little girl who is in LOVE with horses! Apparently sometimes she believes she IS a horse and will only whinny and neigh. LOL. Today when we were at the car dealership with them to get their rental car fixed, I sat in the car with Sophie and Emma while Martha went in to talk to the people. She had 4 stuffed horses (2 of them were Webkinz) and she had a stack of coloring sheets that Jay had printed off of the internet that were all of horses. I didn't even know you could find that many different pictures of horses to color!? Later in the afternoon, after Sophie got hurt and we were planning to meet up with them later to swim, the kids and I went to the basement and found 4 stuffed horses, 2 of them were the beanie babies I used to collect, to give to Sophie. She LOVED them and I was thrilled to death to get rid of 4 stuffed animals out of the basement and they went to someone who will LOVE them. I was more excited that Gage and Emma were willing to give them away. Even though they haven't played with them in FOREVER, sometimes they don't always want to give things up. They were willing and I quickly took advantage of their generosity! We got home around 9:30 tonight and I think Emma was asleep as soon as her head hit the pillow! Hopefully we can have a quiet weekend and get all rested up for our trip to Iowa for the 4th of July!
P.S. I'm pretty impressed at the speed in which Kara, Katie and Jari Jo solved that math puzzle! You guys rock!
