Youngest Daughter has three spaces in her smile right now!
So, technically this is a photo from yesterday of Middle and Youngest Daughters. But it’s so cute that I’m sharing it anyway.
For Christmas, Youngest Daughter gave me a gift certificate for a visit to Starbucks. Today, I cashed it in. We took markers along. 🙂
Friends drove from eastern Pennsylvania to help us celebrate Youngest Daughter’s birthday (a few days early). Here, everyone is winning a round of Hullabaloo together.
The girls went sledding again today. With just a little melting, the hill was fast and slick. And Youngest Daughter paused to act silly.
Sorry – it’s the best photo I have to offer today. 🙂
We claimed an empty picture frame from church that was going to be discarded. Fun ensued. This is Youngest Daughter.
At supper last night, we had this little exchange among Middle Daughter (age 8), Youngest Daughter (age 5), and Ordinary Mommy…
MD (turning to YD): What’s six plus three?
YD (after a pause): Nine!
OM (quizzically): How did you know that?
YD (matter-of-factly): Because when you make a nine-patch and you have a group of six, you need one more strip of three.
Ordinary Spouse/Mommy/Homeschool Teacher laughs, because there are all these techniques for teaching addition, and then the child goes out and learns it from her quilting.
