The photo on the right was taken on July 10, day 23 of her Leukemia treatment and 27 days after being hospitalized. She had a stomach ache most of the day. I was hoping for a smile to match the first photo, and I finaly got one.
She found this dress in her closet and thought it was so pretty that she just needed to wear it. It was her older sister's Laura Ingalls dress, and made by my mother. She loved it and I caught her checking herself out in front of the mirror several times the day she found the dress.
So we read the entire set of My First Little House books instead. My daughter loved them and it only took two days to read all fourteen books. This series is a great introduction to the chapter books. The illustrations and text gently introduce concepts and themes from the historical time period which can be difficult to understand in more advanced books. Now I look forward to reading the unabridged series with her.
