Every now and then, however, I am able to lure her out of her cave.
We took aquarium rocks, aquarium plants and some toys we had laying around and made this tub, but the surprise came when Ivy walked in and saw it. She immediately started moving the animals around and helping Birdy decide who lived where and which ones were friends and which ones were family. Then Birdy was treated to an entire under the sea drama played out for her by her sister. It was so sweet to watch them play together even though they are 8 years apart.
I have a whole post which I am trying to prepare on the art of story telling. But because this is such and important part of our family, I want to make sure I do it right so it may be some time before I get it finished. Until then, I would encourage all of you to find a way to share a story. Its a great way to bring a family together.
Thanks for stopping by.
