Ella's first "playdate" at our house was a success. She and I were both running around like we were entertaining the queen. On the way home we turned onto a rural road with redbuds and dogwoods blooming and a pasture of cows and Ella says to her friend, "Isn't the world just beautiful?" The little friend looked at her like she had really lost her mind. She said, "Can't we find someone who just wants to come over and play some kitchen?"
