By popular request (ie. Greer), another post. Because Ella is still as cute and funny as ever. But now with a broader vocabulary.
I walked her to school today and she went to park her bike while I tied up the dog. When I went to check what was keeping her, I saw her comparing bells with another bike-riding kid and show off her bike to a friend. When I urged her to hurry, she rolled her eyes at me and said: "Mum. I have things to DO, you know".
Then she read me her 'critique' on a kids' book about a farm that they read in class. The review was meant for the library.
It was very well written (I'll have to wait till the end of the year before I can post the whole thing) and full of delightful phonetic spelling. But what made me laugh was the fact that her last sentence started with: "Farmers would like this book".
