I love watching my kids grow and change and yet stay the same. Lately I've been looking at Emma and thinking, when did she get to be such a big girl? She reads in a week what I do in a month. Oh, who am I kidding, she reads in a week more than I do in 6 months. She's been an avid reader for as long as she could pick up a book. Books in the car, the tub, her bed, at the table. Last night, a dream came true for her, she met Mary Pope Osborne, author of the Magic Treehouse Series. She told us she wanted to know "what inspired her". When she shared that, I got choked up. If you could have seen the sparkle in her eyes I think you'd understand.
