E Friday - shoes

In following the tradition of Clare we return again to E Friday, where I post photos of my darling granddaughter E, because VG really likes to look at these pics. Back to Portland in September, it looks like the sun does shine once in a while, and it does get warm enough for shorts. Not warm enough for going barefoot though.

Trying to remember three years old, and when you finally were able to put on your own socks and shoes. The magic of Velcro means you no longer have to learn how to tie the shoe laces.

How do you do it? Very carefully, and one foot at a time.

And I hear that she is very good at reading now. We have been buying her books, and mom has been teaching her how to read. She loves looking at books, but I don't think she quite knows the words yet. Unfortunately mom has also combined the reading with another new activity. E is learning how to use the potty, and to keep her there longer mom has given her books to read while sitting. Now, I understand, she spends a good deal of time in the bathroom reading. But she has taken after dad as well, for if you try to go in you will hear this little voice 'may I have a yittle pivacy, peese'.
