A Young Dreamer

Family is coming in town tomorrow so I have been mowing, raking, grocerying, baking and cleaning. It has been a great few days, including an entire day of baking with my new friend Stacey yesterday. Fidget is beside herself with excitement about the cousins coming.

I have a couple of new knitting projects finished but instead of showing them this evening I wanted to share this video of a little boy's story. With cardboard boxes from his dad's auto parts shop in East L.A., this 9-year old, Caine, created arcade games complete with tickets and prizes. His first customer was so enthused about this young man's creativity and inspiring motivation, he made this little film about Caine and his shop. It is a blessing to see someone so young following his dreams. Enjoy.

  1. I love having family visit. Our littles enjoy their cousins too. Good luck and I hope you all have a great time creating new memories!

  2. Great video!! Go Caine!!! I am excited for you to have your company... and mine just left. It's so quiet and lonely w/out extra loveable folks here!! Enjoy!! Love you!!

  3. Thanks for visiting, friends! Fidget is in heaven annoying her cousins one by one :)- but this time she's really bonded with the boys nearest her age and it is great to see. And I know what you mean, Lollie. It is always quiet when family leaves. For now we're enjoying 'em while we've got 'em.
