This is Eli

A blog about Eli. A blog about survival – and by that, I mean life!

Laila has been begging me to make her a YouTube video for months now.

I finally did! We made Perler bead crafts. Why are those things so incredibly satisfying to fuse together? Now that we’ve started..we can’t stop.

Just a wee ulterior motive here: I’d like to try to practice reading and writing on cue cards..just one or two. My hope is to secretly help build her confidence in her abilities, and her own voice.

I love doin’ special little things with her here and there. Like, in mid-July, we went camping. To a folk festival. In the middle of a pasture. Did I mention mid-July? Oklahoma mid-July?

She’s so much fun. She is toothless, silly magic. And she is the only one in the household who can tell me which shoe looks better with which outfit.

Lailai you are one of a kind!
