Day One Hundred and One

Rain days, big storm. Lot of fun for us Southern Californians who are always pining for weather. We are calling it a “rain blizzard” in honor of the blizzard we just finished reading about to Luke in “On The Banks of Plum Creek” by Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Mom has a great connection to the “Little House” books, that I never thought twice about, assuming they were boring (to use a word that Luke has gravitated towards) and my only connection to them was the TV show of the 1960’s. Well, like most well known books and certainly ones that have won multiple Caldecott book awards, they are beautiful, insightful and fascinating looks at frontier life and the the main protagonist, Laura, is cut from the same cloth as Lily and Lily’s mom for sure. A life force to be reckoned with. I love them all dearly.

Luke came home after school and promptly read Lily “Brown Bear, Brown Bear”, it was so nice to see and I hope to see a lot more of that soon.
