An Emma Observation

Emma has finally realized that she doesn't have to have me sitting right next to her to read. THANK YOU JESUS! She is reading everything she can get her hands on, and if it's a little tough, she usually just grabs a pencil and codes what she can, or asks for help. It's really quite cool!

This afternoon, her "Your Big Backyard" magazine came in the mail. Chloe had her "Ranger Rick" and I had the Lifeway Flyer. We were all cuddled up in the loft reading.

I heard Emma sounding out a word, but rather than just jump in, I let her figure it out on her own. She worked and worked until she realized it was the word "issues". The following was our conversation.

Emma: Well....sweet mercy.

Me: Something wrong who? (Who is our nickname for her)

Emma: Yes! They want me to fill this out, send them money and they will send me 4 free issues.

Me: Oh, it must be time to renew your subscription.

Emma: Well.. I don't need them. I have enough issues.

I feel for the man this one marries! She's six and already knows her issues.

ha ha ha! That is too funny. I just love your little ones so much!

Kaitlyn is starting to sound out some now too. She was convinced she could get her sparks verses on her own! Go girl. So I let her do the best she could and we talked. It is fun watching them grow up.

Love you girl!

Amen to that, sister!

I am laughing so hard! Any child that says "sweet mercy" is okay in my book!
