The kids received the first three audiobooks in the "Little House on the Prairie" series for Christmas. (Thanks O &R!) They were such a huge hit, that we continued through the remaining 6 books in the series, thanks to our awesome school library. We listened only when in the car, driving to and from school, which when you think about it is alot of car time. But it took us 4 months of listening nearly every school day. There were many discussions and take-a-ways from the stories, each kiddo at a different stage of understanding (and at times willingness to listen). One sweet take-away for the girls has been the braids. Laura and Mary always wore their hair in braids tied with bows at the ends. And so, for nearly 2 months now the girls been requesting braids in their hair (minus the bows) nearly every day.
