This right now is Leila's most favorite puzzle to play and to think about to have to talk about. It is the entire solar system, except one of the planets, Pluto, has eyes and a mouth and is crying.

She always ask why is Pluto crying? And she knows the answer, but we always have to answer: because he is not a planet anymore.

Then, she always asks me in German:

Papa, warum weint Plutel?

And the answer, in her own German always is:

Weil sie kein Planet mehr ist.

It's hilarious, because for some reason she inserts that L at the end of Pluto. But also because she always asks the question about why Pluto was crying. And it's always the same answer, but she keeps asking the question.

First summer day!

Today was 69° out. We got to play outside all day and the kids enjoy the sun. It was so much fun to play outside in the yard, and Watson and Leila played with the hose.

Leila und papa

Leila malt all diese hübschen Bilder. Auf den Bildern bin oft ich drauf, und die Leila ist drauf, und die Sonne scheint. Sie malt auch sehr viele Osterglocken.
