Evie is telling Scout and Badger about Lula's climbing exploit, making it to the top of the Eiffel Tower model.
Of course she wants to try it! Evie is competitive, and admires Lula's courage. I had to talk fast to convince Evie not to climb to the top, just in case.
And I was helped by the interaction between Badger and Scout.
Badger is always sent into a kind of delirium when he is near Scout, a fact that Scout exploits shamelessly. She leads him around like a puppy. (She once called him her rescue boy!)
Evie is not getting much encouragement for her climb!
"Make yourself useful!" is one of Scout's favorite expressions.
And she finds lots of useful things for Badger to do.
But...fetching flowers? Not Scout's idea! That is all Badger.
Usually Evie puts up with Badger's moony looks and romantic gestures towards Scout, but today it's too much for her. She disappears to find Lula and Owen. Hunting for frogs...now that's useful.
What is the matter with Scout!
Awww. So sweet!
Miley, our Dolltown reporter is impressed.
But this photo here shows Scout's attitude toward her wishful beau...
Scout is a realist, not a romantic. (Not that we have seen anyway.) She recognizes how useful Badger is. Packing food to the foodbank, digging in the community garden...
She is a bit of a clothes horse...but it must be cotton, linen, or silk, and from eco conscious companies. And she'd rather wear a real flower than jewelry that turns her vinyl green.
So, "Thank you", she said aloud to Badger, before she asked him to help her sort doll clothes. She wants to give some away to homeless dolls.
Wait, what? Homeless dolls? Where?
Give away doll clothes? No way! Do you know how hard I have worked to get those clothes for you all? I work my fingers to the bone. Something you dolls wouldn't know anything about, would you?
Where'd they go?
