S8 is now S9. We celebrated her birthday in Florida at Legoland. DH, O7 and I gave her a sketch book and two books: Greek Myths and King Arthur and his Knights. She dove right in to the books and finished both before we returned home.
Here we are, driving to Tampa to take my brother to the airport. S9 is reading one of her books and O7 is reading about types of shells. She found a free pamphlet at one of the shops near our beach condo, and asked to take it along so she could learn which shells were in her bucket.
