For his daily writing assignment so that his writing muscles don't atrophy, I asked Silas to write about what he was looking forward to most about school. Here's what he wrote:
It has been a long, boring summer. Camp, horseback riding, fishing, Legos, a trip to Yellowstone, fishing, playing with friends, sleepovers, a sleepover party, homemade ice cream, homemade popsicles, pool, cousin time, grandparent time, crawdad fishing, biking the neighborhood, zoo, museum, more Legos...
Thank god that's over and he can finally DO something all day. Well, six hours of the day, at least.
Meanwhile, Helen and Mary, her doll, are both looking forward to starting first grade.
We visited the Denver Doll and Toy Museum to celebrate (and also because The Boys went to the Rockies game).
