I admit we haven’t written any penpal letters the past week and a half, but I couldn’t resist posting this one! As I was hastily uploading photos earlier, Satori took a pen and paper and wrote grandma a letter. I did not help her at all (usually I dictate the letters for her to write her sentences), this is all Satori. 🙂

I am sorry that it will not make much sense to the average reader, but this is the best my 4 year old can do when writing a paragraph letter to her grandma. I love documenting these efforts, it wasn’t too long ago when she just had chicken scratch (no letters at all, just scribbles), then random letters, and now we have random words! It won’t be long until she is truly writing stories and letters all by herself with no help from me.

Again, I did not help her spell any of this, she was doing this all herself. I think it’s adorable! She is now writing a letter to grandpa. His is full of the words DEAR, CAT, FUN and random numbers. 🙂

A side note, Satori is on some kind of growth spurt, both mentally and physically. She seems to be wanting to learn tons and is asking all the time to do lessons. (We took a break last week while I designed our reading room.) She also is ALWAYS HUNGRY, which is not like her. I swear she is eating 10 meals a day! I want to clarify that she is not one of those  child geniuses that teach themselves how to read and do an entire Singapore math workbook in one day, but she is really progressing fast lately! She is attempting to write in lower case even though we haven’t covered it and has been picking up random books and trying to read them. I feel guilty that I do not spend much time actually homeschooling her this summer, it’s just a few minutes a day. This fall we’ll be more focused.

Last night I brought in our Lyra colored pencils and some paper and told Satori to freely draw whatever comes to mind as I read her the Tale of Despereaux. The results were interesting, it was fun to get a glimpse into her head this way. 🙂 We put these up on our Inspiration Wire and will be rotating new ones as we read the next chapter book (not yet planned).

These could be tiny spoilers, but I will do my best to not give away too much. We will be finishing up the book tomorrow, so all these pictures are of scenes toward the end. In her first drawing think Roscuro the rat even has his spoon on top of his head!
