The pumpkin has been spending most of his days at his grandparent's ger up in the hills just outside of Erdenet. Mom pleads self-defense and pre-planning for the fall when he goes to day care and she takes computer classes. So far so good, eight hours away from the breasts from which all good things come has led to independance for both of them. And more to the point of my title, he has made friends with the granddaughter of one of his grandmother's friends. They have known each other since last fall, but limited themselves to the odd fist full of dirt in the face. However as the last couple of pictures show, they are buddies now.
His first attempts at friendship were rebuffed.
Gotta love the kids in the flower patch. Mongolia is lovely this time of year and I miss it and them so very much.
Thanks to Erdene for knowing me so well, that she sends me the pictures which really count for something.
