It's Summer and we are excited. More time. More time for reading as a family. We've started a Hardy Boys Book. We might have to follow it up with a Trixie Belden book, my all-time favorite series as a kid.
One thing Daniel was really enjoying his last couple of months of school was the writing exercises where he got to draw a picture and write a sentence or two about his picture. I bought the two big kids primary journals (just $1.69 each at Bartells) so that they could spend time this Summer writing and drawing, not just reading.
