One of my favorite memories of our recent trip to Iowa was watching Addie interact with her second cousins....whom she had never met before. Cautious at first...she most certainly was but by the end she couldn't get enough of my cousin's 3 boys. And watching them with her...just made my heart melt...they were so sweet..so kind..so patient..so understanding. Even when she had to have e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. they touched. While I didn't get nearly as many pictures as I wanted...I managed to snap a few of them enjoying some time kicking a soccer ball around. Addie didn't quite get it...but these boys...they tried to teach her...tried to show her how to play the game. And while she wasn't their best student...even the blades of grass distracted her...she had fun!!!
