On our hike yesterday, when we got to the beach, Margaret and Ellie both grabbed the notebooks in their backpacks -- you remember their backpacks, that they had to have so they could have water? Well, they needed writing utensils as well.
Margaret announced her intention to write the names of the things that she saw so she wouldn't forget them, and figured out all by her lonesome how to spell log. I'm very proud. She asked me how to spell lake. So she got those things recorded properly.
Ellie wanted to participate as well.
Unfortunately, she got stuck for a word.
It's very hard to be 2 when you want desperately to be 4.
