Crossed off our list

Before our trip to Algonquin, we crossed another item off our summer to-do list. We finished reading Charlotte's Web as our bedtime story. This is the first chapter book I have read to the kids and it was a big hit, despite the scarce illustrations and the need to remember the finer plot points from night to night. Tonight we saw a spider building a web outside the window as we were reading (the selection du jour was "Olivia Saves the Circus") and we discussed whether her name might be Charlotte and whether we might wake up to find "Some Pig" written across the pane.
