Books and chicks

This evening, C finished reading Sarah, Plain and Tall and she has just started reading Little House on the Prairie. She was initially hostile to the idea of Little House on the Prairie, but she saw a couple episodes from the TV show a few weeks ago and Sarah, Plain and Tall is also about a pioneer family. I don't know quite why, but she is actually reading the book. I'll probably try some other books from the series if she seems interested.

In other news, I thought it was about time for the kids to decide what to do with their charity money. C had slightly over $20 in her giving container, which meant that she could choose between giving chicks, ducks or geese from heifer.org (I haven't gotten around to explaining to the kids that money is fungible, and the money may wind up going to something different). C chose chicks. We still need to count up D's charity money and have him decide what to do with it.
