Whew! The time has gone by! I like to think I've made the most of it. Hope I have. I've really been struck this summer with the realization, "I only get one chance at this life thing." The kids are growing and healthy, the bills are paid, and God loves me. Er-bear turned 10 this summer, and I am 32. Life is messy, but God is good.
We've spent a lot of time at the library. I've enjoyed selecting a stack of books, settling into a quiet corner with Little Sister and reading together. The kiddos took an interest in the summer reading program, and that has given us something to break up the monotony of schooling through the summer without co-op. The older two have read 2,000 plus pages and have their names entered in the drawing. Little Sister has had 75 plus books read to her. If she gets to 100, she'll be entered in a drawing also. The library will be having a pizza party on the 7th, when the summer reading program ends. It's been nice to have this to look forward to. Another favourite has been Hank the Cowdog. A friend introduced us to this series of books, and he's turned out to be great fun!
