Here you go Lady Violet (one of my commenters)! Here’s a Western Painted turtle that my husband found two days ago. Isn’t he or she pretty? Long nails… Is this a boy or a girl? I don’t remember what you shared. This should actually be first on this post but this is how the pictures lined up. Elisabeth has read each and every one of these reading books. She has read over 1500 pages between all of these. She is now on her last 3rd grade reader book and she’s only in the 2nd grade! We only read together for 15 minutes a day. Home schooling can be done with little time but with consistency. She has had a homemade yummy treat every time she finishes a book. The others get to indulge too… And of course with Hannah and Matthew finishing books, momma had to keep making yum yums for them. : ) They all enjoyed our neighbors raspberries with cream on them. We’re just so proud of her reading capability. And not so happy Chops getting a haircut. It isn’t his favorite thing to do! We love you little Matthew!
