Protector, welcome and young reader

- This fiery dragon protecting his family from evil doers.

- A red-cheeked little boy flashes a beaming smile as he runs to the door of the Agape community center. He and his wee sister break free from their mother to beat on the door, calling "¡Hola! ¡Hola!" A smiling woman opens the door to welcome them, saying ¡Hola! in return.

- Waiting room conversation: A young woman lovingly describes her 2 1/2 year-old son who likes to play with little cars, but mostly likes to sit down with piles of books and "read."

Now that's a serious yard ornament!

That's so cute about the toddler "reading". I wonder if he reads the books upside down like my three used to at that age? lol!

Talon -

I like the unexpectedness of the dragon in front of the cottage.

You know - I almost asked it he was actually some kind of prodigy and was really reading, but didn't. I imagine it is just as you describe. She said she can't get him to go to sleep at night, so allows him to take books in the bed to read.

You have three children? Neat!

The second one paints such a lovely scene. So much love every where to behold, ahhhhh.

Jannie -

He was so cute - so excited. It must be fun there. The little girl was cute, too, with her baseball cap and ponytail.
