|You can see the smooth coat of cement over the disintegrating brick. Remy is such a hard worker, such a good guy.|
|So glad that Remy's mom and siblings will have a house to live in that won't fall down on their heads or leak when it rains. At least the big holes are filled!|
The other day we were driving somewhere with Remy when I pulled out some gum for Gary and me. To be polite, I offered Remy a piece. He didn't know what it was and asked if it was medicine. I tried to explain to him what gum is, why we chew it. It was kind of a challenge to make sense of the gum concept. And then I had to explain that you don't swallow it, you spit it in paper and throw it in the garbage. I don't know if the gum experience was very satisfying. He didn't chew it long. Not nearly as enjoyable as his first taste of strawberries!
