Blueberry gets nervous while reading aloud so, yesterday, I pretended to be her 3 year old, rather precocious student, to put her at ease. It worked. The whole family laughed through the entire thing and she read me 4 whole books. But, this morning, right away, she once again requested to read to "Annabelle". Annabelle's voice is pretty hard on my throat. And takes a lot of energy. But I shall forge on in the name of literacy.
I am thankful that I was a theatre major in college.
