Colette's Collection

My niece is 6 years old. She is the daughter of Yun's brother. All of us were enjoying the beach on the New Jersey shore over the weekend. Colette has not been to a beach much in her life. She went crazy for sea shells. All kids do. She is different though. Colette loves EVERY sea shell. If a shell is busted, smashed, ugly or just plane destroyed, she has to have it. She spent 2 days collecting anything that resembled anything that was close to being shell-like material. At the house there was a giant shopping bag full of this refuse. I had to help her clean each piece. Then I bought her a carrying case to lug it all back to Maryland with. It's hard not to love a kid who loves everything, including me.
