I have been reading “Little House in the Big Woods” to Avery. We are really enjoying it. I was telling her that the stories in the book are autobiographical, the stories are about Laura and written by Laura. She asked how she could remember the stories, there are so many. Laura kept a diary. That peaked her interest. She’s been talking about keeping a diary or a journal for a while now, no time like the present.
When I was a little girl I kept a diary too. My parents still have them in the basement. I’ll have to dig them out the next time we are there. It’ll be fun to look through them with my daughter.
