LiLi was barely in the door yesterday when she raced downstairs to play the piano.
She had learned Twinkle, Twinkle on a piano app & wanted to show us. I found some simple songs for her & Popster helped her with them
She played for between 2-3 hours with only a break for breakfast....she is obsessed!
Then she "retired" to my room for her other obsession....reading
She sets the time on her phone & reads for an hour. There is a challenge at her school to read for 90 mins a week. They have combined grades to form teams & are sailing to South America using the minutes to translate to miles. She has been reading for close to 300 mins a week & her goal this week is 60 mins a day! She wants to win so, of course, the "over-achiever" in her thinks she should do a "little extra"!
After lunch we went snow shoeing....I'll share those pics later. Then we spent some time in my sewing room designing a skirt from a "jellyroll" I had.
She picks out the strips & the order she wants them & I cut them to length....I think she should be a fashion designer as she has a great eye for color. I think though this week she wants to be a piano player!
Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming
They are still working on my house
I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house "Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
