Blogging has taken it out of me this week, and so for Friday’s post I am sharing this adorable image of Ruthie pretending to be Frodo. I accompanied her on a school field trip to Mounds State Park in Anderson, Indiana, and she spent almost the entire time asking me to pretend to be Tom Bombadil. We had to repeatedly run over to the tree that she had dubbed Old Man Willow to sing a song and coax Merry and Pippin out of the roots.

I guess reading The Fellowship of the Ring to her every night at bedtime for the past couple weeks is starting to have an affect on her.
