While Em formed careful letters, we talked about grocery lists, and how they help you remember what you'd like to buy.
In the background, Elle shouted out suggestions. ("Chwotate! Tooties! A bouncy ball!")(En Englais: "Chocolate! Cookies! A bouncy ball!")
Em read his list to me eight times on the way to the store.
He checked off each item as we placed it in the cart.
And voila! A happy half hour of grocery shopping and education all wrapped up together.
Perhaps the next field trip will be to a spa...
