I have to say, we've been having a blast this summer! Between the swimming lessons and the karate practice and the library's awesome summer reading program, we've been oddly busy but in a good way. I'm very much an advocate of not doing too much and being home more, but it has been such a nice break from the norm. We're still tackling reading lessons...gently...very gently, but that's it.
And we're doing a lot of reading aloud which has been wonderful. All four children hang around our living room or the picnic table outside listening to whatever book I'm reading out loud. Right now, we're reading Ginger Pye, which is a really cute story. We're also reading the Adventures in Odyssey Imagination Station books. We started the first one yesterday, and they begged me to finish it. Literally, begged!
