Today I took Melody and Orrin to Phil Foster Park and we spent the day playing at the playground, then we had a picnic, I watched the kids chase the birds and relaxed on the beach. It was a great day.
Melody was so glad to have books back on the boat and she has attacked her reading cards and work “as she calls it” with a vengeance. I encourage it as much as possible. She can read whole sentences now like “The cat sat on the mat, or I was wet, and I am a dog.” She is learning a lot of sight words now.
Soon I will teach her the blends, “ex. ST, CL, CH, TH “ We called my mom and dad tonight and I think she read her sentences to them about 10-15 times.
Barry helped one of our neighbors today. His name is TJ. He has been sailing the Bahamas for a couple years. He doesn’t have a car to get around in so Barry drove him around to different places. Barry also got a P.O. Box for us.
