Elora has been saying to her parents that now she is 6, she would like a later bedtime. She said all the kids in her class get to stay up later than she does. So her Dad told her to write down why, and she did. I will translate below:
(I think it's sweet how she is writing for Cami, too. )
"Why should I go to bed early? Are bedtime is so soon. We don't have very much time to get redy for bed. And we can't do veary much. We don't have any time to play games. And we have to do scelpsher (scripture) reding. But we can't because 7 thorte (7:30) is so soon. We don't have time to play games and we don't have time to watch you guys play games. And we go to bed when there is still some light lefet in the sky. And we don't have varey much time to teach Cami stuff she needs to leran. It does et fel like the day has gone by so fast. I need more time to do my home worck. I don't have time to do my work. We don't have time to find our pegais (PJs) or put them on. We can't get my tiny drink of water and my vitamin. And that's all I have.
So who won? Elora now gets to stay up until 7:40 every school night. She got an 10 extra minutes, and she is so happy.
