Here is our new reading adventure. LITTLE TOWN ON THE PRAIRIE. I know that all my kids can read this on their own but we have always read these aloud together...slowly and here we are. Obviously we've had some delays in our schedule over the last year. We love them so much. I love this little family. Already, I am loving this book just like the others. We decided to take turns reading aloud to each other with this one, fine tuning every one's read aloud skills and there will be narrating going on. We have our sketch books out for all to use as well.
Laura is a teenager now (not a term then). I am already loving how selfless the girls are regarding their sisters. Laura obtained a job in town that requires her to sit still doing tedious careful stitches for a QUARTER a day!!
Quickly, Laura multiplied in her head. That was a dollar and a half a week, a little more than 6 dollars a month. If she worked hard and pleased Mrs. White, maybe she could work all summer. She might earn fifteen dollars, maybe even twenty, to help send Mary to college.
Isn't that sweet?
Here is another sweety. Pa just asked the girls, while at the fourth of July celebration where he obtained some free fireworks that they would never have waisted money on, if they would like him to set them off now or after they eat.
Laura and Carrie were thinking the same thing. They knew it when they looked at each other and Carrie said it. "Let's save them Pa, to take home to Grace."
I know that was simple but I wasn't even expecting that one....so thoughtful.
