Zabby Eight Update 8/25/10

This last weekend, Katherine only took Alodda to camp with her. She and Zabby have drifted apart. Zabby went bowling with her other friends. Watch for her on ESPN, Kat says that she had 200 strikes!

It is really interesting that the friendships are evolving. Katherine really likes Alodda’s company more now. From Kat’s description of Alodda, they have more in common. Both are outdoorsy and both like the color green.

Alodda spends her nights at my campsite, this is one reason that Katherine cannot wait to have morning hot chocolate with us. Alodda,Kat, and I had another lovely morning listening to the birds and enjoying our breakfast.The three of us also went to the beverage center and to Stewart’s.

Arthur’s vacation will come to an end soon and Katherine says that he is anxious to go back to school.

“Being a deep-sea diver is a lot of work you know, Grandma.”

“I hope he has a chance to come to your first soccer game, Katherine.”

“No, he’s going back to school next week but Alodda will come.”

“Where has Zabby been?”

“She has new friends now. She would rather be bowling.”

“That’s too bad. Do you miss her?”

“No, Alodda stays with us now. Zabby is having fun.”

Well, this author may have to change these post’s to Alodda Updates. I can’t wait to know more!

Imaginary friends seem a lot like real ones 🙂

Zabby Eight Update 7/21/10

Katherine just returned from a weekend at her Papa’s campground.

Seems she had a great time and spent most of it in the pool.

“Did you wear your life-jacket Katherine?”

“Yes, but I took it off and swam to Mommy a few times!”

“Hurray! Was Zabby there?”

“Yes, she didn’t need a life-preserver though. Imaginary friends can just walk in pools. Their legs stretch out when the water gets deeper.”

“What happens when she leaves the pool?”

“Her legs snap all the way back.”

“Did Alodda go swimming?”

“I don’t know, she stayed with you.”

“So, that is why my bed felt crowded last weekend?”

Soon after that discussion, Kat asked me to take her to the bathroom.

“I’m still afraid of spiders!’, she said.

This arachnophobia is trying my patience.

“Katherine, take Zabby Eight with you. I heard that she can scare spiders away. She’s very good at it too.”

“Grandma…she is NOT a professional!”

Yikes! I was out smarted again…change the subject…

“So,where has Arthur Eight been?”

“He’s STILL at school.”

“I hope he’s studying to become a professional Spider Tamer.”
