I have been busy working on my layouts for Create My Keepsake's January kit. My dining room table is covered in the makings of two, maybe three, more layouts. Once again, my family is eating dinner picnics in the living room floor until my projects are complete. We had a pizza and bread sticks picnic tonight courtesy of me ordering Pizza Hut, so no one is complaining too loudly.
Breuklyn is sitting next to me at the moment laboring over her vocabulary words. We just finished reading Hap is Hot. I think it is cruel to name a rabbit Hap in a story filled with hops, hot, had and has. I think they should have named him Burt and been done with it.
I don't remember the whole learning how to read ordeal. I remember other vital information, such as the name of my Cabbage Patch doll, but I don't remember the learning to read process. My Cabbage Patch's name was Stephanie Elizabeth, in case you were curious. Paizlee's Cabbage Patch doll is struggling along under the name Georgetta Marion. We call her Lucy.
Anyway, Breuklyn is reading and I swear that I don't remember the whole sounding out every sound to form a word deal. "Can" has been transformed into ca-ah-na. If you squeeze them all together, you don't get "can" as a result, but rather, in the mouth of a 5-year-old, you hear something that sounds more like "Canada." If this is phonics, then I don't like it. However, I have a ridiculously good memory so I just memorize everything. I am making flash cards post haste.
I will be choosing a winner for the Fiskars- Cloud 9 giveaway tomorrow, so don't forget to enter!! Happy almost-Friday!
