Quiet on the homefront

After a very full day, it is quiet here tonight. Very quiet and lonely. My time spent talking with adults consumes about 30 minutes of each day here. Our youngest attended her second day of preschool and still no talking, laughing or going potty there. I am praying that we do not have two with selective mutism. It just cannot be possible. Time will tell.
Meanwhile, home-school went well today! She "wrote" a story. She told me what to write and the words are all hers! I am bored, so I figured I'd post it here! "The Little Girl Who Lived in a Garden"

Once there was a little girl named Mary and she lived in a garden. And then after she first went to her new house she played outside and picked some flowers too. She put the flowers in a pot of water and took them outside to get more wet and get more sun. She went inside and ate her dinner of broccoli, carrots and celery. Her daddy came home after she was asleep.

That's it. I thought it was cute, but the ending really threw me for a loop! I never saw it coming! Also, I was a tad confused on the whole "living in a garden" title, because no garden was ever mentioned. But then I reminded myself that it WAS the author's first work and she is only 5 =)

That's about it. Waiting for my husband to call....

How IS oldest's struggle with selective mutism going? She seemed to be somewhat improved?

It might be a comfort if it's just a short phase.

Looking forward to hearing how school goes for each of your girls today!

Another writer in the family?
I wonder where it comes from?
