Helping Dad

originally posted at

Savanna has become really involved with the motorcycle project. Almost everyday a box comes to the house containing some part and she gets very excited. It’s something for the motorcycle! I can’t wait for dad to get home and we will open it! When James gets home they open it together and James explains what it is and what is does. It has really been a learning experience for her! This particular night she was out in the garage helping. She was wearing her pink sparkly shoes, which made it even more special! She helped measure the bike and basically fiddled with everything. James gave her the broom and asked her to sweep up to keep her occupied and away from the important stuff. James said he checked on her and noticed that her finger was bleeding. He asked her if she cut herself and she shrugged her shoulders and said no. He pointed out the blood and took her inside to clean up. The next morning she said, “I was helping daddy in the garage and I didn’t know I cut myself but I looked down and my finger was certainly bleeding.” She is certainly James’ girl.

This is beyond my translating capabilities but I know it’s about Lillian’s dog Leo and that there was a cookie, a squirrel chase and a happy ending involved.

lilein had a car axcind and her dodr dide but she hert hr foot she justhad her set belt on it took 100 days too hell. a chruk hit thercar on axtit i hope lilein wil feell betrr soon beceas ofthe axtit

Translation: Lillain had a car accident and her daughter died but she (Lillain) hurt her foot. She had her seat belt on and it took 100 days to heal. A truck hit the car on accident. I hope LIllian will feel better soon becasue of the accident.

Context: Sam has adopted Lillian as his PA Grandma. They have become good friends. They met when I was making meal arrangements for her while she was recovering from a lingering foot injury caused by the car accident last summer. We saw Lillian today so I think that’s why this is on his mind. She is actually doing really well and seems to be completely recovered from her foot injury.
