Yesterday Finn wrapped up his state-required standardized testing (a homeschool obligation we must fulfill). While he was working his way through the language usage section, Annie was on a chair getting into the kitchen cupboards. Then mysteriously taking things to her room. Then she was quiet in there for a while. Once he finished that last section of the test, Annie informed him that she had a party planned for him in her room.
She had set out snack plates and filled tiny cups with water. She had also set out a stack of clothes on her bed--well-organized, with one for each of us....labeled. (Did I mention she's very much her mother's daughter?) We were all to change into these assigned clothes and return for the party. I wore my purple dress, a scarf, and lots of dress-up jewelry.
After the food she and Finn worked a puzzle while I read a book to them. Then we went outside to play kickball.
She's so thoughtful!
