Since summer is in full swing and M is home, we are doing our own form of pseudo homeschool in the morning. On Monday, M has to write out her story in printed letters. On Wednesday, she rewrites it in cursive, and on Friday she types the story into a Google Doc.

Well, I'm a terribly proud mom and have to share. So here goes the story so far:
Once upon a time...
There lived a little penguin. She was a pink penguin.
Everyone thought she was the cutest thing! By the time she was 5, she was able to play guitar really well. She even got her own show...Rock On Toddler! The only thing is, she never talks. The only one she spoke to was her mother.
The only reason she didn't talk was that her mom died, and her dad was King.
But she couldn't go into the castle because it was a "no kids zone".
On her birthday she got a guitar and became famous!
She took the bus while making herself look like a high school cheerleader.
She lived in an orphanage and went on lots of field trips.
Chapter Three (this week's installment):
"My dad killed the queen," she said. "The King killed the Queen!"
Everybody looked at her and screamed with joy.
"Why are you soooo happy?"
"Three reasons," said Beca. "One, the queen was bad. Two, you spoke. Three, we get to name you."
"Bella?" asked Trixie.
"Mary?" said Jackson.
"No. Katie!" she said.
"Katie sounds great," said Ms. Oak
Stay tuned, and happy summer!
