school is officially here. the eldest of the wee finches started yesterday to second grade. i still don't feel old enough to have a second grader. when she got home from school, she had the customary paperwork that needed to be filled out and sent back. being the good mom that i am i filled it all out and sent it back with her today. while reading a note from her teacher that had listed some of her goals for the students reading, i saw that they were going to be doing chapter books. the eldest of wee finches has tons of books, but alas no chapter books. we made a trip to town after school to purchase some that come highly recommended by pattylicious. we purchased the first five of the magic tree house books. by the time the eldest of the wee ones went to bed she had read the first two and half of the third book. now this might not seem like a huge accomplishment to some, but that is around 160 pages in about an hour and a half. that is quite impressive to me. she is loving the books, so it looks like tomorrow i will be purchasing some more of the books. if anyone has a suggestion about other books for a second grader let me know.
