The children decided they would like to practice writing yesterday, so I used a nifty little site that lets you create words and sentences for tracing and printing. Far be it from me to actually write these things out myself. I love this little program and asked the children what sentences they would like to input into the worksheet maker. This is what they practiced:
*Maverick has stinky farts.
*Stop hurting me Tate.
*My butt hole is pretty. (a particularly challenging one as I wasn't sure if butt hole was one word or two)
*Amulet is the dolly mustard. (referring to her newborn poops that looked like mustard)
*Tate has squirrel hair.
*I do not like chores.
*I am a princess.
I'm in agreement with the kids in that these are extremely important things to know how to write. :)

Gorgeous black raspberries are thick in the forest. Their thorny sweet bushes tangle themselves in the thick heat of July, lying in wait for the children's hands to pluck them from their stems. They are plentiful this year.
I love seeing the kids performing the ancient ritual of berry gathering. I hope they always remember this!
