I'd post a little something more for today, but I'm running out of time. Hubby and I are getting ready to head out for our weekly Date Night here in a couple moments.
A few quick things on my mind...
1- the kids are doing FANTASTIC with their pictureless readers! They have both individually read through 5 books a piece!!! Arianna is absolutely ecstatic that she's reading and can't wait to read more! It's like all she needed was a bit of success and she's now off and running! I LOVE watching her develope a love for reading. Some day, once she's got a good hang of reading, illustrations won't be a problem for her (or Benjamin). But during these beginning stages, removing them has been the best thing since sliced bread over here!
2- I've got a twin in South Carolina! My sister found a comment on Passionate Homemaking (see comment #15) about a woman named MelissaD that nearly fits my own description as mom and homemaker. (She thought it WAS me until she followed the link.) I hope to get the chance to introduce myself to her when I've got a bit of time. Uncanny how closely our lives resemble one another!
Post more tomorrow!!!
