OK, so day one of the writing lessons wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. We brainstormed, made notes, and actually wrote a paragraph together, Exciting, Adorable, and I. Things went well until Adorable wanted to use the idea that cute dogs make us want to talk in "wittle baby voices." And she wanted me to spell it like that. How is this child going to write college essays?
On a different subject, thankfully, the salmon chowder was incredible, and as soon as I remember and have two minutes to spare I'll share the recipe.
Be thankful ~
