Between the photo above and the one below, we had to dash to the girls' bathroom to, er, "worship the porcelain god." Poor soul wanted to go back and do her reading...
I was very proud of Rose #1. She really wanted to read her poetry and she got up with her group to do their group reading. (I also want to stress that we hightailed it on out of there right after her reading, and she spent the rest of the day on the couch.)
In the same vein as poetry, tonight we started journaling as a group. I got each Rose a composition book and we all sat down to draw pictures or write about our days. There aren't many rules - you have to date each page, you have to write something about your picture or your day (or have something written), you have to use the pages sequentially, and you can only write in your journal at journal time. The Roses loved it.
It was such a nice evening with no TV. I sure do hate TV.
