the Princess...

has turned into a book worm. Noticeably so in the last month, she reads non stop and has churned through a huge amount of chapter books.

She has just finished reading one of my childhood Enid Blyton's and is about to start Nana's set of Heidi books.

They were printed in 1953, read avidly by my Mum and then by me when I was a little girl. We now think the Princess is ready for them.

I am going to read her the first chapter in bed tonight. I can't wait to reacquaint with Heidi!!

She is doing so well this year, a bit of a rocky start, but she has a wonderful, inspiring and caring teacher who has pushed and coaxed her along and now the Princess is achieving great results.

She got this certificate on Friday. She had written 6 pages of a story about fairies!

Her Daddy (the wasband) and I are so very proud of her!

was quiet, had an open home so we visited with Nana and grabbed the Heidi's at the same time,

caught up on laundry,

about to shower the Princess and get her ready for bed,

and me ready for a full night of study,

take care

Reading is my passion, honey, and look like it will be hers also. Once a reader; always a reader.
Better than the TV!
