Trip to the library this morning for fairy-tale books. The castle was closed so the girls actually looked at books and did the coloring sheets instead of running around in it.
Lucy spent close to an hour sitting on the couch looking at (non-library) books before lunch.
We went to the Pax Christi peace liturgy – time for socialization, cookie sampling, music watching, saint statue and stained glass identifying, and liturgical experiencing. Part of the evening is that everyone processes to the front to sign in a book that they pledge to live peacefully in the coming year, and Lucy signed her name. And she actually tried to write it, not just draw a squiggle like she usually does. There was a definite “L”, an upside-down “u”, about three attempts at a “c”, and finally a nice “y”. I was very proud. Samantha signed her name with a squiggle that looked like Lucy’s usual work, which was also impressive for her. This is the first time Lucy has really attempted to write her name on her own like that. So it was an exciting day, all in all.
