The “moving was crazy brutal but it was worth it and this is why“ edition. (And maybe not entirely wordless. I mean, let’s not get carried away or anything.) (Ahem.)
There was a little reading aloud, a little lunching, some poetry writing (Prim just writes and writes and writes- there’d be no stopping her even if I wanted to!). The boys ate grass and pine needles and leaves, and Posy went around licking the mayonnaise off everyone’s sandwiches.
It was bliss. A fenced flat backyard is not to be taken lightly when there are hundreds of babies mucking about.
(p.s. Andrew Pudewa sang the praises of the Lemony Snicket series in the first episode of the Read-Aloud Revival. I remember starting it years ago but being a little flummoxed as to why anyone would recommend it. I’m willing to give it another try, though, so I downloaded the audio version of the first in the series (The Bad Beginning) from Audible and am going to give that a go. What say you? Have you read Lemony Snicket? What did you think of it?)
