We are reading My Father's Dragon aloud and all three girls squeezed onto my lap or on the arms of my comfy armchair to see the pictures and listen. I like for Lyddie to practice reading aloud so I picked out an adorable Carolyn Haywood book called Here's a Penny for her to read a bit of to me each day. I haven't previewed the whole thing but it seems really sweet and is a perfect reading level for her. She was especially excited when it mentioned that Penny is six years old, since she is turning six in two weeks (gasp!).
The weather has turned cold finally and I'm closing up shop in the garden, leaving only the cold weather plants in the ground - kale, lettuce, brussels sprouts, broccoli... Winter is on its way (or "vinter" as Rosie calls it).
