No Baby Stuff at The English Schoolhouse

So I've said before that when the kids read, I read.
When the kids write, I write.
Now let it be known that when the kids snack, I snack...
sent Flavi to get this from the bar downstairs this morning.  
Love how it came on its own little golden platter.
 Today before writing in our journals we held a quick Writer's Workshop.  I modeled/explained the difference between chicken scratch (aka scribble scrabble) in my own journal...
and acceptable work
"Scribble scrabble is baby stuff," I said, "and if there's one thing we all know, it's that there are NO BABIES allowed at The English Schoolhouse.'s writing time!"

 ...and dictating and illustrating is exactly what they did.
