Last week I got invited to eat lunch with Maddison in honor of "souper" readers. We ate a bowl of turkey noodle soup and then had a few minutes to read together. It was so great to get to see her again in the school setting. I relish every chance to spend time with Maddison or Mason. I know that children grow up so fast and every developmental stage needs to be enjoyed!
On Saturday, Maddie and I went to the local library and selected some books to check out. While we were there, she informed me that she loves Jan Brett books. I was a little surprised because she has never mentioned a "favorite" author before (except for Dr. Seuss). Then she added that Jan Brett books were also her teacher's favorites. . . ahhh now I understand! Amazing how much influence a teacher can have on these young moldable minds.
