Lily crept down as I was starting to think about what to write tonight; she shared some ideas and I will try to go with those.  (She has pretty great ideas much of the time, if I stop to listen).

  1. Tell them about how awesome my Periscope was {yesterday}.  And, indeed, it was awesome and she blew me away with her ease of conversation, her interactions and how interesting her life is…and sharing that with others.  While she won’t write many things for me, her conversation and expression are turning into terrific strengths.  She is articulate and I can see her mature right before my eyes.  I am going to ask her to do a review/reflection on the book we just finished so look for that in the next few days.
  2. Sarah, Plain and Tall is the book we just finished.  It all was tied into a unit on maps and mapping.  She researched Kanas and Maine, we kept track of the artistic way the author used colors in the story to help us understand mood and gathered clues about whether Sarah would stay or leave.  It was very satisfying.  Since Christmas I have used Moving Beyond the Page as my main curriculum source and we have both found a groove in learning together.
  3. Our upcoming trip:  We are all excited to meet Baby Owen and see everyone out on the West Coast.  I didn’t share the alarming news that the pool heater isn’t working (right now); they have been working way too hard at swimming for that to happen!  End of March into April; home by the time Lily turns 8! (Have mercy!)

So, you see, a pretty nice list of topics for tonight, provided by the first born of the family.
