Sentence Excitement

Christopher is writing sentences - he wrote two by himself this morning and was so proud of himself. Unfortunately, they got thrown in the trash and covered in pasta sauce, so I can't scan them in... but they are:

CHRistoPHER NEiL har EN GroDa i handen.
(Christopher Neil has a frog in his hand.)


NEiL VEL ha EN jqaD
(which should have been "Neil vill ha en gepard" or "Neil wants a lepoard." but gepard got a bit confused in the sounding out process... and then the "p" got a bit turned around.)

First grade is fun!

From Their Perspective

We were in Yosemite at the end of July, and in the lobby of our hotel was a group of people filming the "Oh, Ranger! Story Tour". They were going to 10 national parks, using macs to film peoples' impressions of what they had seen. I thought it would be fun for the kids... but legally the adults had to be in the video as well. So the whole family crowded in a little tent, in front of a MacBook Pro, and talked about our tour of the park with Ranger Ralph.

It took several weeks for them to post the video, but finally it's here.
