Oh yes, Addie, she certainly does! Cat and I see your post. Cat wants to know what you do, and so do I.
We also work on crossword puzzles to help Cat with English, and there is also the big jigsaw puzzle we are working on.
We also play board games when the others are here. We like Monopoly, Sorry, checkers, chess, backgammon and card games also.
Cat's "soul sister," her best friend, Lakisha is absolutely the chess champion. PapaCat is very good -- I do mean GOOD -- at chess. He has never won a match against Lakisha.
We also play the old version of Trivial Pursuit Aunty Stela has. Carl is very good at history and when he's here, we try to fit in a game.
Cat taught Lakisha how to crochet, so Lakisha is finishing a scarf for her Mamma earlier when she called.
Cat has also been working on the guitar. Tonight she played and sang for us these:
"Nights In White Satin" - Moody Blues
"Light One Candle" - Peter, Paul and Mary
"City of New Orleans" - Arlo Guthrie (Not sure he wrote this)
"As Tears Go By" - Marianne Faithfull
"Somebody To Love" - Jefferson Airplane
"Cat's In The Cradle" - Harry Chapin
These are songs I love.
As each day passes, I see very much sensitivity and also maturity in her. I've told her this, and I think she's aware of all the changes we all see in her.
She's quite the growing one, by leaps and bounds.
