It is funny that Stacy mentioned using dialoge in a Slice today, as I had just decided a moment at my breakfast table this morning was post worthy!
"I only see you guys every other day!" exclaimed our youngest, five, to her older brothers, when she heard the boys will stay at Uncle Howard's tonight. Charlie leaned back in his chair with his knee slung over the arm of the chair, his fork waved a piece of ham, as he replied, "Well, actually you see us everyday accept sometimes when we go help with sugaring." "Yeah," Joey chimes in while stabbing another piece of fruit with his fork, "'Every other day' is a pattern of days Lila, like 1,2,1,2,1,2." Lila's face lights up, "I know a pattern! Blue, Red, Blue, Red!" Charlie sits up, "Just so long as it repeats it's a pattern, even this is a pattern", still holding fork up, empty now, "fork, fork, fork, fork, fork,fork,fork,fork. . ." Joey mopped up the last of his egg with a piece of potato pancake, "yeah and ABCDE, ABCDE, ABCDE. ." Lila holds her hands up in front of her turned to her nearest brother and told us, "I made a pattern at school yesterday!" She poked up her fingers one at a time as she said, "red, orange, yellow, red, orange, yellow, red, orange. . ." till she ran out of fingers.
