Maddie and I finally got in a visit. We had Chinese (P. F. Chang's Sweet and Sour) I love this item in the freezer--the chicken is wonderful and the accompaning fruit is very good--can't beat pineapple in a sweet and sour sauce. Then we watched The Tale of Desperaux. Bolt (love that little dog) and went to bed to read.
Maddie is a prolific reader; she is now reading Louis Sachars Wayside Stories. I had a copy of There's A Boy in the Girl's Bathroom by the same author for her to take home. He is funny. I got a Junior Thesaurus and showed her how to use it. She already knew what it was.
This morning after the required Toaster Strudel breakfast, we played Apple Scrabble and SkipBo. Maddie is very good at words; I need to buy a regular Scrabble game and see how she does at that.
The we got out Brandon's Lincoln Logs (wood, not plastic) and she designed and built a two-story hotel, with a very fancy fence around it. What a girl!
Loved it all.
