How To Spark A Love for Books
|leisure time of drawing, reading and climbing up tables to look out the window|
Warning: This post is a brag session, which can be entirely annoying, but it is also a form of journaling all those warm fuzzy moments I want to remember. And it is all true. I can complain about the messes, whining and frustrations another day.

Our book club held once a month is mainly picture books. I tend to read the book right then and there and then we discuss things such a character, theme, etc. We usually have snacks and craft and then the girls on their own decide to act out the book we just read and put on a play. It is a good time, and they look forward to it every month.
Most recently the girls and I saw the newest Cinderella movie which was wonderful! The girls remind me now that courage and kindness are important...on a daily basis. And the movie sparked an urge to write something as a family. And so together we are writing a fairy tale. Elly is eager to do the illustrations and write with mom. Everyone gets a say in the story line and characters. The girls are so excited that when Elly wakes in the morning she asks "When are we going to write the story mom!" It has been so fun for all of us to use our imaginations and work together. I advise any family to spark their families love of books by creating one together!!
Soo I am completely illiterate in technology. I am the opposite of savy. I always admire those who make their blogs look professional. Honestly have no idea how they do this and do not seem to have the time to figure it all out what with homeschooling and keeping house. Anywho, sorry about my random pictures everywhere below. I do not know how to move them! I've been trying but with no success. No making fun!
