Update on Family Reading Month..





Family reading month has turned out much differently than I thought it was going to be-it's one of the most wonderful times of our day. I thought that everyone would go into their own corner of the house and read individually. What has happened is that we are reading together or to each other.











Eli our 2 year old is being read to by different family members each night. Tyler my 11 year old is reading his book report book to me out loud every day which gives us some special one on one time. I'm still trying to fit in my own personal reading time, but that's still suffering.

That's a wonderful idea for getting the whole family reading. It looks like everyone is enjoying it.

Finding your own personal reading time is hard, isn't it? Sometimes impossible! We read to our kids a lot too, and find it a great tiem of teh day!

what a great idea.
I love reading, and out of my three children two love to read also. The other one I have to force to read. Maybe I'll try your idea.

Awesome! I love to see this! Quality family time seems to be seen less and less these days. Your children will always remember these special times. What a great mom you are!
