stone animals

Tilly has divided the yard in half. Carleton is not allowed in her half, unless she gives permission.

From the bottom of of her half of the yard, where the trees run beside the driveway, Tilly can barely see the house. She's decided to name the yard Matilda's Rabbit Kingdom. Tilly loves naming things. When the new baby is born, her mother has promised that she can help pick out the real names, although there will only be two real names, a first one and a middle. Tilly doesn't understand why there can only by two. Oishi means "delicious" in Japanese. That would make a good name, either for the baby or for the yard...
