ABC Wednesday ~ K is for

 K is for Katie

 

K is for our Katie. Katherine on her birth certificate.

 

Our Katie has an amazing amount of knowledge stored in her brain and I will show you some photos that might explain where some of that knowledge comes from.

 

At a very young age if Katie went missing this is where you would find her.

 

She was most drawn to books with words, not picture books. We had a few old school reading books and these are the ones she’d pull off the shelf and carefully go through.

 

As you can see she did not have a shortage of toys but she always seemed to go for the books.

 

We didn’t realize how well she could read until a trip to Meadowdale Beach Park with our friends the Spiro’s. Jody was walking hand in hand with Katie when they came to the tunnel under the railroad tracks that took you to the beach side of the park. As they approached this tunnel with this sign Katie said quite clearly to  my friend Jody, “Caution Low Head Clearance”

 

We realized then that we had a little 4 year old who definitely knew how to read. Who knows how much she was reading without us knowing before this experience.

Well this is all about Katie so for my last photo to throw in another “K” word, here’s Katie in a Kilt that I bought in Scotland in 1973! It fit me once too 🙂

For more ABC Wednesday take a trip across the pond to Mrs. Nesbitt’s.

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage and they have blacked them all out. I’m slowly working at restoring my posts without their help. Such a tiresome bother!

  1. Ellen, you are welcome to come camping with us any time. We are at Sunrise a couple of weekends each month during the summer and we have an extra tent. Get in touch when you are in Seattle.

  2. Great pictures. Our daughters always wanted to be read to then as they learned how to read were always into books. Looks like our grandson is following in the same path. Reading is a good way to learn.

  3. Really such a lovely post! Your daughter is so beautiful! Love seeing her photos, always with a book on her hands… Me too, I always love reading since I was a little girl like Katie! Many hugs to you both!

  4. Katie has become a beautiful young lady.
    Look forward to her wedding day after this posting.
    She must have many a fella a her door and mom and
    dad watching closely.

  5. 😀 Awww shucks Mom…Love you!

    And everyone’s comments are very sweet.

    I never realized there were so many pics of me that little, and reading…I mean sure over the years many must have accumulated, but all back then? Haha.

    Credit for the beach pic at the top goes to Jamie Spiro, the one I tried to take of myself was not nearly as cute.
