Castles and gardens and ponds

Despiste their age difference and Marlo’s sometimes belligerent bossiness, Ella (Chris and Carol’s daughter) handles Marlo really well. Here Marlo is showing her all that she has built in Minecraft including her castle that houses two dogs. Marlo is so obsessed with that game, and so I have to be very mindful of her screen time. Otherwise that screen would consume her. So sometimes we get creative and “draw” Minecraft and spell it out and identify other things that begin with those letters.

That her name begins with the same letter is one of her greatest achievements if her reaction to figuring that out means anything.
