That enthusiasm was conjured to help create enthusiasm for the most boring day of the week.
I have been shunning the computer and reading a lot more. I finished "Maine", a great summer read this past week. I literally felt like I was at a cottage on the coast...among family drama right there with the characters. Great story. Now I want to read the author's first book!
Also I have been reading in preparation for my first year as a homeschooling mom. Yikes!! There are so many great resources. I can't wait to reveal the plan to you later this week or early next week!!! See all those exclamation points?! SUPER EXCITED.
My daughter (Miss Z, total toddler) has been loving the "Belly Button Book" by Sandra Boynton lately. Because she is obsessed with belly buttons. She has to lift my shirt up and tries to show everyone mine. Sigh.
Little Mr. Z, my preschooler, is reading a lot of old favorites lately. I have to make it a point to ensure that he is getting plenty of "new" reading in too. He recently got "Port Side Pirates" from Barefoot Books (or, he took it from my stock =)) and loves the appendices just as much as the story. It is really packed full of pirate info. Perhaps some pirate crafts are in order? Also, Mr. Z loves "Lily's Purple Plastic Purse". I do too because Kevin Henkes manages to sneak humor in there for the parents too. Love it when I laugh out loud while reading to my kids!
I hope this inspires you! And I want to know what you are reading too!
