While we played Ticket to Ride, Zoë and Alexander drew pictures. They are always so excited to draw while we play games. I'm not sure why. I mean, they always like to draw, but when we play games they really like to draw.
Before she'd finished writing it she offered to read to us what she had so far.
"Once upon a time, a grown up who was named Zoë (that's me) was looking for a job. And she found one: And it was..."
"What?" we all asked.
And instead of answering she just waggled her eyebrows mysteriously.
"That's all I've got so far," she said.
"Well, you left us with a real cliffhanger there! We need to know what job this grown-up Zoë finds."
So she finished her story: "And it was teaching. But she gets bored of teaching. And she decided to explore."
This narrative was accompanied by a lovely picture of Zoë riding an elephant through the jungle (chasing after a monkey). Having just finished reading Range (by David Epstein), I thought it was so wonderful that she incorporated a career change into her story like that.
May she never stop exploring.
