Never too late(or early) to learn something new

 4 year old Nora is learning to read! We spend about 15 minutes of each day doing 'school work'. We started awhile back learning her letters and sounds along with numbers, and a few weeks ago I checked out a book from the library called, "how to teach your child to read in 100 easy lessons" which we've been working on each day. They're using the Distar method, and it takes about 10-15 minutes to get through a lesson where we learn and review sounds, then we sound out words, we read a story and do some comprehension and all the while it's building and growing on previous lessons. I've loved this and have been amazed at just how well this is working.
And 33 year old me just learned how to fold fitted sheets well :). I was tired of asking Scott to do it all the time (his mom had a business where they set up apartments and laundering the sheets was part of what they did, and Scott worked for her), so I looked up a video on You Tube on how to fold fitted sheets, and voila! In the picture, the sheets on the top are fitted.
