Feel my brain!

Today in school, my 5-year-old wrote her first real story. Something longer than a few sentences. She was pretty excited. By the time she was done, she was tired. She finished and held onto her head for a minute.

I asked her if she was okay. She looked up and said, “Mom, feel my brain! It’s growing!!”

Here is the grand accomplishment:

It’s called “Alooki.” (She got the name from the girl in her new favorite book, The Three Snow Bears.)
Alooki is a eskimo girl. She is 6. She lives in an igloo. Her brother and sister broke her fishing pole! She tried to glue it! It didn’t work. Next she tried to tape it. It fell apart. She asked her mommy for help. They fixed it. She said “yay!”

I’m pretty proud of her, and her growing brain!! :)

    Very impressive!!! Tell her that I am Proud too, my boys don’t spell quite that good. I didn’t see very many mistakes. And that is a wonderful story. I think her brain must be growing but I don’t think I would want to touch it LOL.
