A type of homeschooling?

Only in my house would this happen. This morning after breakfast I tell chick #1 to go and take a shower so that we can do our errands. After I finished getting Chick #4 dressed down to the shoes, I begin to look for the ever famous Chick #3. I have to brush out her hair and make sure that she actually has socks on her feet. Low and behold I find her in the bathroom and she holding the children's encyclopedia for Chick#1 so that she can learn about plants while she is in the shower. What! Now reading books is all well and good but I must draw the line at trying to read books in the shower. Another thing I am pondering is the fact that Chick #3 is an accomplice in this. Is she Chick#1's lady in waiting? It is just so funny to witness the things that these little Chicks do.

For some reason my youngest, Wildchild, used to be able to bend her sister, the Scientist, to her will. The biggest trouble they got in usually involved sneaking food or cutting hair. The Scientist has also been known to squirrel books away in the bathroom but she's never tried reading them in the shower. Funny!

So what important facts did she learn? I bet Chick #3 knows!
