It all started with a refusal:
("I will not read a book but I will rite a book")
Which led to the start of something absolutely adorable:
(LOVE the bite taken out of the P!)
(Pretty sure she envisioned this on the inside of the dust jacket.)
Next, she wanted to add the "Table of Continents," but I suggested maybe she should add that AFTER she started her story and saw where it went.
("The Baby Pig. On a farm thar was a mommy pig and a daddy pig. one day the mommy pig had a baby pig")
I'm eagerly awaiting it's continuation!
Despite her initial written protest, once Jacob woke up and we had official quiet reading time, she quickly got lost in her book:
I never read "The Boxcar Children" growing up, but I've heard great things! Too bad our library didn't have #1 and she had to start on #5. Not that she seemed to notice...or care.
The kids officially finished 2nd grade and Kindergarten the week before last, and unless I find outside activities for them every day, they are stir crazy without the structure of school! I'm wondering if they will eventually find ways to occupy themselves without my constant intervention...because, honestly, it's making me want to jump right in to starting 3rd and 1st! I already have all the curriculum, and they seem so unable to occupy themselves without complaining or bickering... We shall see.
