Those were the days when I had all the time in the world to read.
Now my reading is a few snatches here and there. If we are traveling I choose a book or two to read aloud to my sweetie. That is something we have really come to enjoy over the last few years. We have also had an on again, off again book club. We usually start it the first of summer and by the time school starts we are wrapping it up. We have tried to keep it going during the school year, but everybody has so many different things going on, it just doesn't happen.
Back around the first part of the year, Bossy dropped a stack of 50-cent books on my desk and announced, "These are for book club!" She had chosen "Holes" by Louis Sachar. My kids had seen the movie years ago and enjoyed it, but as far as I know, none of them have read the book.
|Prima Donna is ALWAYS reading!|
I say captive because they really were. We have been trying to have a backyard camp out since Monday. The problem is that we can't seem to get the evening rains to stop here. Finally last night it seemed clear enough that we headed for the tent around 11:30. I know, it was late, but I had basketball until almost 11:00 and the kids didn't want to be out there by themselves.
|When Curly was still curly...|
I'm looking forward to Curly starting Kindergarten next week so he can continue the journey to become a reader. But I'll still take the time to read to him and to all the others too including my sweetie. It gives me a good excuse
