Well here we are all settled into our dear little cottage for the next eight weeks.
I'm hoping the memory of this shift will fade before I have to face
doing it all again at the end of November.
Can anyone say stressful??
Combined with the last two weeks of the semester?? ugh
Anyway on the first morning in our new cottage I had an idea
and I asked Annie if she would like me to read her Winnie the Pooh.
I had an inkling that she was ready for chapter books.
That day while I was in lectures I saw Nin's post about the bookshop
so on my way home I drove past. It was pouring with rain
but there was a park right out side,
and when I went in there was a copy of selected stories of Winnie the Pooh for $2.
There was four other wee chapter books too that looked ok
so I brought them home and while dinner was cooking
Annie and I snuggle under the quilt on the sofa and started reading.
Within about 15 minutes, Annie fell asleep.
What a lovely way to go to sleep in an unfamiliar house!
(She slept 13 hours)
And since then we have read every night.
Roo sneaks up to listen too and they are both enjoying it.
I'm so happy. I'm pretty over reading picture books,
and I'm more than ready to explore Milly Molly Mandy
and then maybe the Famous Five with these two.
Happy! Happy! Happy!
