I like: sweet potatoes, yogurt, any fruit, carrots, bathtime (as always), and playing with non-toy items
I don't like: having non-toy items taken away from me, spinach, being put down for naps
I can: point with my right hand, stand up with assistance, roll around, scoot a little on my belly, knock boxes of blocks over
This grotto is in the backyard of Norah's school, which also happens to be where Chiara's mother went to "Oratorio" which is kind of like youth group for girls. She and her friends used to hide from the nuns by climbing up on top of the grotto. Once, they found a pile of dirty magazines up there--supposedly left behind by the workers that were working for the nuns. Now, that's all she can think of when she visits this grotto!
Ethan has come with Nonna to visit Italy! Here he is in Desio's cemetery. Chiara's mom (Nonna) has to visit the cemetery several times during her visits to Italy. Naturally, we were dragged along. Actually, though, I like visiting the cemetery and looking at all the graves, and people that lived before us. Plus, it's well-kept and not muddy, so Luke can walk around and not get all dirty. Luke likes it, too. A recent conversation:
Me: "Luke do you want to go to the cemetery today?"
Luke: "Yeah! Can I walk on the pebbles and look at all the pictures?"
Luke: "Can we find your Nonna, too?"
Me: "You bet!"
We got back to the train station in Como in the early evening, as the sun was setting. Outside the station is this big sculpture of two hands. I like to think that James and Norah are in God's hands here. We need to remember that especially during the Easter season.
Norah and Luca peeking through a gate in Bellagio. We would love to go back again, because right after this photo, we found an awesome park with a great play structure for kids--these are few and far between in Italy. Unfortunately, we had to run to catch the boat back to Como, so we couldn't take advantage of it. Next time, kids, next time!
