This afternoon, Obrin (our boy from the Fresh Air Fund) arrived by bus to a high school about 30 - 40 minutes from our house. It was a scorcher out there in the parking lot, but it was all smiles and breezes when he stepped off the bus.
Right this minute, he's being given the tour of the place by Rosie and some of the others. For an 8 year old little boy far from home, he sure seems brave and friendly and endearing.
When asked what his favorite color was, he prattled off about ten different hues, including different shades of the same color. When we inquired after his favorite animal, he replied tiger (James' fave, too), and informed us he wanted a baby tiger all his own that he could raise. I'm sure Mom will be on board for that! 8-)
