We went driving up and down our town’s Mulberry Street today to see what we could find. Unfortunately there were no marching bands or elephants! Before we went, we tried writing our own tall tales.
As I was out walking I saw a big blue ball. But it couldn’t be a big blue ball. It was a round blue whale. And to think that I saw it on Eldred Street!
Challenge: Using a pipecleaner and a puff, can you make a clover to keep the speck safe? Be sure it’s firmly attached! What will you use for the speck?
A person’s a person no matter how small!

Starfish (Do you see the stars?)
When Michael was my one and only, things were so much easier. He was always a child who loved when we read to him, and I think we began simple read-alouds like Mr. Popper’s Penguins and the Mrs. Piggle Wiggle books when he was only three.
Now, three more children later, read-aloud is still a treasured tradition in our family. Every day after lunch and a downstairs tidy, we settle in the living room and listen to a story. Sometimes Daddy has an additional read-aloud going at bedtime as well, usually in the summer when he doesn’t have a meeting every night.
