Hello from the Outer Banks

Hope all of you are taking these days to read a few good books. The Lil Princess (8) has already completed her reading for the library summer reading program, and the Lil Diva (10) isn’t far behind. Because the Lil Diva is going into the middle school next year, she is part of the teen program, which I’m not thrilled about, but she’s doing well. It’s the reading material I’m worried about. I definitely need to skim everything she brings home to make sure it is age appropriate–though I think my version of age appropriate might be different than the library’s.

We’re finishing up our final days on the Outer Banks and should be back in MA over the weekend. I would love it if you would share some of your summer reading with us.

Did You Meet Your Summer Reading Goals?

The beginning of August brought about the end of our library’s summer reading program. The Lil Diva and the Lil Princess met their goals. In addition to their weekly prizes, they got a chance to attend a roller skating party at Interskate91. A picture of them participating in The Great Create, an art program offered in conjunction with the One World, Many Stories Summer Reading Program, was published in our local paper. I’ll try to post it if I can get the hubby to scan it in.

I don’t set summer reading goals because I read almost every night anyway. So far this summer I have read and reviewed:
