The Owl and the Pussycat

Ben has finished memorizing his first poem of 2nd grade. We both thought this poem was really cute and enjoyed learning it.

Stay tuned in a few weeks for some Robert Frost.

Ben I so enjoyed your recitation of the Owl and the Pussy cat. It is one of my very favorite poems from my childhood.

He will now forever know what "quince" and a "runcible spoon" are. We might put quince on our grocery lists - Clara is on this poem too!

Btw, I spent all morning with Clara today in hopes of getting 2nd grade done before lunch. I sat with her (she and I in my comfy chair, then her at a little IKEA table and me in my comfy chair)from about 9:00 - 11:30 and made it through all but harp and Alaska. We were a day behind, but still. Trying to train her, speak to her incessantly about praying for help to complete her work cheerfully, cooperatively, and quickly. Yes, this will take training!

Good job, and may the Lord be with you in your efforts!
