W has letter tiles (single letters and combinations) that we played with together this morning. He created nonsense word that I pronounced for him, LOL, and I made words that he sounded out. He made his name and J's name, too. J spent a lot of time today on her American Girl dolls, dressing and redressing them on the floor of her beautiful, "new" room. later on she updated her website a bit and her blog. I suggested using the blog (or creating another one) for journaling all the things she does during the day - but she had no interest in that. She's just not a diary keeper. But, she has been reading a lot more lately! She has her own reading area with a rocking chair and lamp. She even shoos W out of the room so she can concentrate! Her newest interest is sewing, so she's asking for a sewing machine so she can create new "fashions" and dance outfits for Marisol that match hers. Did you know that Marisol means "ladybug" in Spanish?
B is home today (doc appt) and is brought K and W to school, picked them up, and brought J to dance. This is giving me a chance to catch up on some cleaning. I need to help K with her room either tonight or tomorrow and bring down all the bags that belong in the basement. Everything is so peaceful around here when there's no clutter or mess.
