We have a number of small children on our street - some of whom you saw recently, playing with water and that crazy little dog named Benny. Below are a few photos of one of these girls. Her name is Lynzie and she came by to visit one day. I just couldn't stop snapping photos of her beautiful, little face as she watched Benny scamper about.
She's only two and a half but has advanced command of the English language, speaking in full, intelligent and sophisticated sentences. Needless to say, she is very charming. She also displays a multitude of expressions on her lovely, little face. I culled my dozens of photos down to the ones you'll see below. I feel fairly certain that once you see her, you'll fall in love with her, too. I hope you enjoy these portraits of Lynzie and the quotes which accompany them.

This was a scheduled post. I'm still away from home for a day or so. We're probably in transit somewhere between the cottage, Frank's place and my own. I hope to catch up with all of your fine blogs before too long.
