Conrad found a cardboard die-cut book shaped like mittens today and immediately had a plan for it. So did I, but he was much more passionate about his idea than I was about mine. So he got out his ridiculously large pencil (another fabulous dollar store find) and began writing his story. I was putting things away in the kitchen and telling him letter-by-letter how to spell mittens without seeing what he was doing. After saying "s", I looked. He had written each letter. I couldn't believe it, still can't! We haven't really worked on writing letters. Sometimes I'll write a letter and he'll copy it. This was a whole new step.
