*Monkey brought me a flower from our yard the other day. Apparently our hollyhock was having one last hurrah before winter. It had a tiny stem, but Princess insisted I put it in water - and floated it in a little plastic tub.
*She is super into baking right now - and she can now make cornbread all by herself (except the oven). She's at the point that when she helps now she helps instead of slowing you down (even though that's fun, too). Right on.
*She finally read Anne of Green Gables! Finally. She's read Little Women, Tolkien, etc., but for some reason (probably because I kept asking her to) she just wouldn't read this one. She loved it. Of course she did!
