The school year is over for me, which is always a bittersweet feeling. I must admit, I don't think I've ever made it through the last day of school without shedding at least 1 tear. This year was no different. The tears are happy and sad. So, today, let's focus on the happy. Now I am completely focused on being a mother to my awesome children. My kids are such a gift to me - they bring me joy, and I love spending so much time with them. Most of all, I love to watch them interact as brother and sister...the hugs, the fights, the laughter, the mischief!
Last summer I really liked the Literacy Challenge I set for myself. This summer my goal is to keep my shelfari shelf up to date with all the books we read on a daily basis. What? You don't know shelfari? Well, check out my digital bookshelf at the bottom of this page! Go to www.shelfari.com and start making your very own digital bookshelf! I hope to write a short review of select books. Check out my shelf if you are looking for book ideas to read with your toddlers, tweens, teens, or even for yourself! I will admit, I almost always choose a young adult book over adult!
Also, I have formed a toddler book club. Our plan is to meet once each week to read a book and create a language experience for our children ranging in age from 6 months - 3 years. I will post about those gatherings as well.
Happy summer to all! Remember to read with your children, and create meaningful memories by interacting with your children!
