My 6-year-old vlogs “all about book reports”

I may have mentioned that our younger daughter is quite the chatterbox (J is always muttering something about “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree” … I wonder what he means by that!?)

Tonight at dinner we were listening (for the 6th or 7th time) her story of choosing a book for a book report.  The current First Graders are making a bulletin board that will greet the incoming First Graders in the fall.  She is SO excited to be a part of this project.

Our older son said to her, “You keep telling us this over and over again, you should just record it on Mom’s blog!”  She turned to me and asked, “Mom, can I!?!”

And so, a vlog was born:

Oh, this was recorded after she had her shower, but before I cleaned up the dinner dishes … please don’t zoom in on the mess on the counter!  We had a few false starts with her younger brother jumping in front of the camera too … still working on my video editing skills!

If a picture is worth a thousand words …



“I went to Ikea.  I got a lamp and a bedside tadle.  Then I got a sinamin treat.  yum.  Thay made me go threw the hole stor.”

“Then my mom and dad and me went to the toy part of Ikea.”

“Then I bot a toy.  It was a ball and a teddy bear.”

(Her second book) “The important thing about Elizabeth is … I have a rock collection.  I have more than 100 rocks!  I have a jar to hold my rocks!”

“My favorat rock is white and black.  My 2nd favorat is gray.  My 3rd favorat is grayish white.  I have lot’s of rocks!  I love rock’s!”
