Get ready for your summer flashcards, Kira!

Kira finished school yesterday but I think this year I will actually have to get her on some sort of regimen where she can keep up her academic studies.  Last summer she forgot how to read.  It was a tough two weeks before school forcing her to remember.

This summer I think we'll have to have an intensive course on basic animal knowledge.  Why do I think this?  Two reasons, so far.

Reason number one:  Right now we are watching the rest of the movie 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.  It's a Disney movie from the 60s about a submarine and a crazy submarine captain.  There happens to be a pet seal on the sub.  It crawls around and begs at the table and wears a collar and barks and claps.  Kira loves it.  But today I realized she didn't know it was a seal.  She said,

"Do you think they ever take that sea-dog off the ship?"

I cracked up and she said, "What?"  I said, "Kira, it's a seal."  She said, "Oh, it is?"

Reason number two:  Mitch bought this toy for Kira when he went to Chicago.

She said, "What do you think it's supposed to be?"  I said thought it was a cow and I asked what she thought it was.  She looked at it for a while and said,  "Probably a giraffe."
