reading hour

Photobucket

Most weekday afternoons, directly after lunch, you’ll find us reading. This year I’ve been expecting at least 45 minutes of silent reading per day. On this particular afternoon, Christian and Rebecca enjoyed their Ancient Egyptian historical fiction enough to remain on the couch even longer. I peeked over the loft wall and…well, you’ll see…

In most instances, 1 photograph of children reading might be sufficient for a blog post. In this instance, however, 6 photographs more completely tell the real story.

    I’m enjoying these moments with my kids while I still can! Holly has been reading in her own room for a while now. I appreciate that she wants a bit of solitude, but we miss her being with us too.

    Looks like post-it notes might be a great future gift idea 🙂
