"We taught the children to value tiny moments from their lives. We taught them that as writers we hold these moments in our minds and hearts, then we make a story about them."Basically, for the past two months, Peanut has been doing in class what her dad has been doing on this blog since two months before she was born. I thought that was pretty cool.
Here are some of my favorite highlights:
|"I was going to the American Girl doll store."|
I love how she spells American: "uy mirikin." And how she
went there in a motor home with duck lips.
|"I am having a birthday party."|
Apparently we set up a slip and slide in the house.
And one girl isn't enjoying it.
|I chose this one from her birthday party story |
because of the disturbing depiction of me.
Are my legs that rotund? My feet that small?
And my shoulders...is my posture that poor?
This drawing has given me somewhat of a complex.
I dug deep into the archives (almost 3 years back) for a "small moments" story of MINE to share with you. It remains one of my favorite posts of all time. You can click HERE to read it.
