Erin and Patricia with Enstrom Almond Toffee – Sun. Aug. 30, 2015

Patricia arrived today bearing gifts. She brought boxes of both light and dark chocolate almond toffee from Enstrom, a candy store in Denver. She also brought some solid chocolate critters which her son Tom purchased at Enstrom for Erin. (See photo below.)

Patricia has come out for the Regional in Santa Clara which she, Clark, and I are going to on Wed. morning. Colleen is coming out from Boulder Tuesday evening to stay with Erin for the week. Patricia and I played bridge today.

This evening we went to dinner at Roma’s Pizzeria. When we got home, Patricia helped me to dig a well around a dogwood tree which looks like it is dying. I have been throwing shower water on it for several weeks, and the soil is finally loose enough that some of the water seems to be penetrating.

Patricia rehearsed Erin with words which we have written on flash cards. These are words which Erin has grappled with in conversation during the past couple of weeks. Tonight Erin could quickly read apple, cheese, peach, tortilla, bed, bridge, glasses , horse, and Clark. She stumbled and said something similar to avocado. But for beans she could only say “be”. She said it was her favorite food. So, she could recognize the meaning of the word, but couldn’t say it.

    How nice to have Patricia with you. She still has the teacher in her with the flash cards for Erin. Hope you enjoy the tournament and the visit from Colleen.

    Erin gave me a bag of Enstrom caramel corn (with almonds for protien) when I dropped you guys at the Denver airport in a blizzard. In case I got stuck in the snow and needed sustenance on the way home.

    I have food in my purse at all time in case there is a snow storm. That’s just good, practical planning. No one wants to be the next Stolpa’s.
