Summer Reading Fun

Emma has discovered her love of reading. In fact, she will often (about 200 times a day) pick up a few books, bring them to me, and say, "Read!"

Often when I'm busy I'll have Megan read to Emma. It's good practice for Megan and she loves to help out and read to her siblings, so it's a win-win situation. Oftentimes Emma doesn't care who's reading to her as long as she's being read to.

Also, Megan participated in a program at Borders. She had to read 8 books and turn in a paper listing the books she read. Then she got to pick a book from a very poor selection. Luckily we were shown the wrong section of books and she got to pick a fairly cool version of Black Beauty that has a CD with it. She can listen to it and read it at the same time and it pretty excited about it.

What sweet sisters! I really love Sandra Boynton books, they are so much fun to read.

Also, here is a suggestion for your blog. You should have a permanent section for books you're reading right now. I need some good book suggestions, and we have the same taste I think. I would love to know what you're reading.

Also, (sorry this is a really long comment), Congrats on getting along with your manuscript. I notice your percentage is up and I'm totally proud and impressed!

Can we say "Little Megan?". I can't believe how much Emma looks like Megan, especially in that last picture. Sorry it's been so long since I have been on your blog. If you look at mine, it has been awhile since I have been on mine. I am not a fan of probing either. They did give me a cancer screening the last time I was at the dentist. That was awesome. You are great.

I was told by a dentist, that having kids is awful on teeth. I had one or two cavities and then after Teddy the dentist was so shocked that I only had one. I don't know if that makes you feel any better.
