Matchy Matchy

We did not forget this past weeks Field Trip...it just was not much to speak about. It was a really hot and humid day so we went to the movies. Avery has been waiting and waiting to see the new Kit movie. While we were there Mitchie and Chris went to see Walle. Avery and Kit both got dressed up for the show. Avery loves the matching clothes. I even made Kit a skirt to match the black floral one i made Avery a week or so ago, and a matching pair of jammie pants.
So, reading is something we are continuing to encourage with Avery. She is doing great but she is the only one that needs to be convinced of that. She has been reading books like this Kit book and many other chapter books, yet she still thinks that it is too hard and she can't do it. Funny since she is the one reading to us and to Mitchie all of the time, and because this is how i find her very often these days.

Avery, will you read to me when I come to visit? I want to see your matching clothes too. See you soon.

That is so funny, but Sofi was the same way. She kept saying "I can't read" when she was. I hear that less these days, as it seems something has finally clicked in her brain. I think the reading program at the Library has really helped!

Go Avery!
