Katie and Her Tree

Since Katie was around 5 she has had a special bond with the cherry tree in our back yard. She claimed it as her own, calling it "My cherry tree". Every year she climbs higher and higher. Yes, there was that one time when she was smaller and her fear got the best of her, she couldn't get down. Praise for the wonderful neighbors who gathered round and helped her! (And don't bring that up unless you want the cold, steely stare of a 12 year old!)

I was looking for her yesterday and she was no where in our house. I had a suspicion that she might be in "her" tree...

  2. That is so fun....my little Katarina (who we often call Katie) has a special tree in my Grandma's yard that she has claimed for her own. She started climbing it when she was 3 and now that she is 6 she can reach a few branches higher. I can just see her in 6 more years making it to the top!

    By the way...you have a really lovely back yard!
