Four letter words

I am so proud.

As I was helping the Dude study for his spelling test today, I realized that all his words are four letters.

FLIP
SLIT
FLOP

You get the point.  He is such a little smartie.  It took a while for his confidence to kick in.  He would always say that he couldn't read, but he was reading all the time different things.  It was pretty exciting the day he realized that he WAS reading.

So proud of him.

He wore out his tennis shoes I got him last year for school.  So I got him some Crocs that are really durable.  I got Miss Boo some pink ones a while back and they don't wear out. Love... love these shoes.

And they are blue... how can you go wrong?
Miss Boo is writing her first novel.  She is hard at work every day.  Had to bring out the laptop so she could write faster.  After three hours she only had one paragraph.  Could you imagine if she was writing it by hand?

It has been an interesting process watching her write her book.  As she is writing it, she is planning on having it in a library, owning a book store and having her children read it. She totally cracks me up.  She is still writing the prologue, so this book is definitely going to be a long one.

I am fascinated by how her mind works.  It is always racing and thinking.  She is definitely our "artist" kid.  So creative.
