Bud is a really good big brother, too. Now that Ginger is 'turning teenager' and isn't playing with the kids as much, Bud is really stepping up to make sure he includes the younger kids in things. So, when Edith decided she wanted to climb, too, he was there to help her out.
Good climbing, Edith! Although, I'm not sure it was as exciting as she thought it would be.
Or maybe the tree just wasn't big enough.
Edith really makes me laugh. She's awfully independent, but has no trouble playing the damsel in distress when there's a man around. Makes me worried for the teenage years. For the guys, I mean. 'Oh no, Dad! I need help walking down this little hill that I normally walk down all by myself. I'm stuck!'
She sure didn't have any trouble a few minutes later when he wasn't standing there. Silly.
She's definitely determined to climb that tree on her own. Time to give it another go..
It was a great afternoon for everyone.
