Sophie's gift


This afternoon, I came home from my Russian kids' group to find Violet playing on the computer on her bed.


"Hi Inky!" said Violet cheerfully. "There's a present and card for you on the nightstand. Special delivery!"


I walked over and there it was- a big purple present and a card with Lisa Frank dolphins on it! What could it be?


I read the beautiful card- it was a birthday gift from my French friend Sophie! She's so sweet! She got my gift a bookshop in Massachusetts.


I climbed onto my bed with my present. I squeezed it- it was soft. I shook it- it didn't make any noise. Hmmm. What could it be?


I ripped off the bow, tore at the wrapping, and peeked inside. Could it be?


Yes! It was a park ranger doll, just for me! What an absolutely perfect gift!

Thank you Sophie, you are such a dear, thoughtful friend!

Have you ever gotten special gift from a friend?

In this entry I'm wearing: navy blue tee from Dynamite Threads, corduroy pants from Liberty Jane Clothing, and Janes shoes from A Bee Line


  1. Dear Inky,
    How fun! It will sure be fun to see you two Rangers exploring together :)
    Thank you also for blogging about your life :) In seeing pictures of you and other dolls that look like you, I've decided to adopt one.
    Hope you have a great day playing with Violet and your doll (what is her name?)
    -Rosie :)

    1. Hi Rosie!

      I'm so glad you decided to adopt! Adoption is a great way to grow a family. :)

      My doll's name is Tillie, I think!


  2. Inky!

    I'm so glad you like your new doll! Since you want to be a park ranger when you grow up, I felt that a park ranger doll couldn't be more perfect for you! Have you thought up a name for her yet?
