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.
