Sylvia and the Purple Crayon

The other day I found Sylvia coloring purple on our living room wall which really irritated me because she hasn't done that in a long time.  I scolded her and gave her a wash cloth to clean it up.  (I have to buy one of those Magic Erasers next time I am at the store.)  Later that day it dawned on me that the day before I had read her the book, Harold and the Purple Crayon.  I asked her if she was trying to be like Harold and she said, "I drawed the moon!"  For those of you who haven't read the book, that means, yes, she was trying to be like Harold. WHAT WE ARE GOOD AT LATELY:

Sylvia:  I think her attention span is getting a little longer (HOORAY!)  She can sit and look at books for quite a while now.

Isabel:  She is doing great at sign language and likes to form sentences.  Example:  "Mom, come and play today."  Also she's been drawing every day in her sketch book I got for her.

Luke:  As always, he is great at his personal reading.  He just finished Inkheart by Cornelia Funke and downed a few Secrets of Droon books.

Joey (dad):  After dinner he is always so good to have us read scriptures together and then he does Science with the kids.

Me:  I am good about having the kids do their math each day.  Also, I've been pretty good about keeping the house clean (clean for me) and helping (forcing) the kids to keep their rooms clean.
