The past year or so we have seen glimpses of this but the past few weeks have been incredible. Madison can go off and keep herself (and often her little sister too!) entertained for hours at a time. Often, she will be curled up with a good book but she has been doing all sorts of other creative activities too.
The past 4 days she has started to make a "zoo collection" for Nora's room. She is drawing animals, cutting them out and then taping them above her bed. Nora is thrilled with the results and Madison is really impressing us with her abilities.
The other day she set up a rock work station. She spent time chipping, smoothing, investigating and cleaning the rocks. It was pretty entertaining to watch and she worked for over an hour on this project.
So I am very thankful for the moments of peace and quiet they are giving me and I am very proud of what a wonderful 6 year old daughter I have!
