And here she is practicing her letters with Daisy. Daisy said she maybe felt a little too sick to go to school today -- and it was questionable, really, if she was sick at all; but I am a pushover when it comes to having my kids stay home with me. I like having them around enough that even when Abe told me he couldn't go to school a week or so ago because he felt like he just "really needed a break," I let him stay. I put her to work doing letters with Penny while I cleaned up. Then she entertained my visiting teacher's little girl while she was here. Then we went and bought hamburgers and fries and a new little pool and water balloons (all things that very sick girls generally do when they are home), and it was all just lovely.
Here is how she helps shuck corn.
