Princesses and Fairy Tales
Before I start I need to say Happy Birthday to my God daughter and Little Princess Maria! She is 5 years old today. I have been playing phone tag with her Mom all day with no success, so here is a little teeny eensy weensy Happy Birthday cake for you from me Sweet Maria! ( actually all the boys picked out this picture cause they thought it was so cool that it was tiny!) Hip, Hip, Hooray! Hope it was filled with lots of fun. I would imagine you could probably blow out the candles on this cake if you even yawned in its direction!
We picked up three new books today to continue our classical reading program for the younger kids. First a Collection of Fairy Tales (one of my all time favorites is The Princess and the Pea!)
Next Peter Pan. What a fantastic story. I cannot wait to see how they react to it. I have a feeling it will be a major hit.
Last Gullivers Travels. The political overtones in the story should make it interesting for everyone who is in earshot.
