Story Time

Three things today.

I. Fairytales

Fairytales are making headlines again today and I had the above conversation on Twitter. You can find the original article referred to in the tweet here. And here is the link to a rebuttal entitled 8 reasons why Fairy Tales are essential. Finally, the whole conversation reminded me of a blog post I wrote in 2010, which you can find here.

II. Public Speaking

Anna participated in and won the local school public speaking competition and is off to Peterborough to compete in the provincials sometime in May (date TBD). Last year she came in second locally and competed in Kingston, so she was chuffed to be getting another chance this year. As you can see from the picture, Grace is very proud of her big sister, as are we all.

III. Lambs

You asked for it. Here he is. The house lamb. In a 16 sec movie. Thanks to all of you who sent him good wishes. He is thriving and happy and funny and noisy. And still soooo cute!
