There was quite a bit of excitement in the house the other day for one little girl...
Oh what can this be? Can I hear noises inside? Peggy Sue thinks to herself as she listens oh so carefully...
What?! A box inside a box? How strange.
Hang on a minute, what is this? Let me help you.
Hello there! Are you okay in there? Peggy Sue asks.
Let me get this off. The stranger says as he pushes off the head covering.
Peggy Sue helps him out of the box.
There that is better. Welcome. She says to him. You must be my new brother.
This is for you...he says shyly as he hands over a golden egg.
Wow, thank you. Peggy Sue says as she takes hold of the egg he gives her.
I made sure it didn't break on the way here. It took longer than I expected!
Never mind, Peggy Sue says to him. You are here safely now. What is your name?
My name is Lewis he tells her. At least I think that is my name.
Peggy Sue gave him a great big hug, but Lewis was a little shy about having that photo published so soon...once he understands Peggy Sue's exuberance, I am sure such future photos will be fine...
A little later after borrowing some clothes as his had got dirty on the long journey here, Lewis goes out to explore the garden.
He was pleased to get out and about in the fresh air.
He heads to the pond.
Hmm...not much in there. He thinks to himself.
Can I hear birds?
Lewis tilts his head up to listen to them.
I think I am going to like it here.
Still a little reserved and serious, I am sure Lewis will soon feel more relaxed and happy.
Foot note: Peggy Sue has been wanting a brother 'her size' for about the last three years...so she has been patient...I tried to tell her these things can't be rushed. The last few weeks when she heard about her new brother have been 'too long' she told me and it felt like waiting forever... all good things come to those who wait I explained.
