Grandma's sunshine

I was swinging Melissa on the Sinden rope swing and I noticed the "pearl" necklace she was wearing. I was glad that she can enjoy tomboyish activities, and at the same time enjoy being a girl.  (Check out the middle picture in particular, if you click through to the big version you can see her smile lighting up the trees.)

Later that night Rachel told me about how Grandma Van Duker had heard about how Melissa really really wanted a pearl necklace... so she gave her one. A real one.

 I think we'll need to set some rules for Care Of Nice Things now so this doesn't get broken or lost...
