Maddie wanted a walk.
With a lunch pack.
And a baby in tow.
So I handed them a grocery list, and said "How 'bout to here?" :)
Gotta have some stuff for for fried chicken.
An' oats for granola bars.
And I'll start chocolate chip cookies while you're gone.
"Mom... can we read?"
(We had just been talking about rewards and PizzaHut... and how I signed them up for it, "Since you're reading anyway, I thought you'd like to get free pizza." :) )
"Do you want to read? The little books?" (These are Brand New Readers.)
I've mentioned before how much I love, love, love these books, but here it is, again.
Today we read:
Eddie and Little Skunk (From the Eddie the Raccoon set)
Eddie Digs a Hole (From the Eddie the Raccoon set)
Worm Is Stuck (From the Well Done Worm! set)
Fish Makes Faces (From the Fish and Frog series)
and Eddie In a Jam. (Also from the Eddie the Raccoon set))
We also have and love Mouse Goes Out and Piggy and Dad Play.
You gotta love a book that makes a child soooo happy because he or she can read it (no matter that they don't know all the letters and sounds, yet)! (And the stories are funny and quirky. :) )
With Dad, of course.
Aaaaand it's time to get ready to go.
Up into the mountains for March Fourth Marching Band.
So, so cool.
Are you kidding me? Silver lame' pants next to skin-tight red leopard-print leggings? On men? [Swoon!] It's a photographer's dream!
And an unschoolin' Mama's as well, truth be known.
Hoops and stilts and dancin' and picnickin' and runnin' up and down the mountain.
