she can be taught

Not that there was any doubt about that.

Mostly in an attempt to burn up some of Maggie's under-used brain power, energy and attention (all were beginning to be misdirected into various forms of mild troublemaking), we began a tiny bit of homeschooling this month. Maggie has been loving the Phonics Museum program and asks multiple times a day if it is "cool time". Her favorite parts would definitely be any time we get to use glitter glue and getting to show off her homework at dinner.

Last night we went to Olive Garden where the adults enjoyed the never-ending pasta bowl and Mags got a "kid pizza". She wasn't able to finish all of her meal, so she got to bring it home in a little box. When everyone else began to write their names on their boxes, she was very excited to realize that the two letters she has learned so far are the first two letters in her name, which resulted in her first marking of food territory...

Go Maggie! Congratulations. These skills will be VERY useful when you grow up and decide to use an office refrigerator!
Love you!

i love to work with young children just learning to read and write - it is soooo exciting for them and it passes on to you. Perhaps she will be an author one day, who knows! Grace and Peace to all in Christ.

Mo, I would LOVE IT if Maggie became an author one day. That would be just...fitting :).
