Henry annoys Ele almost constantly by reading over her shoulder. So today she organized a dramatic reading of DogMan. She was the narrator and one character, and Henry was the other two characters. Eleanor is an exacting director, but she gets results.
Every month everyone in Eleanor’s class has to give a speech on the same topic. This month’s topic was recycling. Everyone had to bring in an example of something they had recycled (into something else), so Ele and I made a bag from a t-shirt. It was fun and we were both proud of her. Her speech went off without a hitch, and she was the only one to upcycle a t-shirt!
Don’t tell the other two.
Yesterday Grant was yelling at me from the porch, so I went out to discover he had put his blanket over a bucket, and had hauled himself on top. He was very proud!
