The Family That Reads Together

By Kay on Fri, Jul 3, 2009

General, Memoirs

My grandmother was in town for a day recently, and my wonderful photographer-husband took some incredible pics of all of us. But, this is one of my favorites by far.

Bedtime Story

I love the twist of Kate reading Me Too Iguana (one of my sister’s childhood faves) to everyone. Of course, some of my fondest childhood memories include listening to that beautiful gray-haired woman read me bedtime stories – specifically from a big book of Uncle Wiggily’s Tales. I still get teary-eyed when my kiddos ask to pull down that special book off the shelf to read another adventure of the long-eared gentleman.

Just wanted to share a little moment of our life with you all today, and encourage you to go read one of your favorite books with your little ones.

    I loved this photo when I saw it, I am sure it will become a great treasure as the years pass by and Kate reflects on the joys of her childhood that you are providing. I just read a post at simplemom.net about Childrens literature and was convinced I need to grow our home library some more, and this just reiterates it!

    I already treasure this photo, so I can only imagine how much more valuable it will become as time goes by… *sniff*

    I’m laughing at ‘growing’ the home library. I think if I grow our home library much more, it will start to take over the house! I really love my house, and don’t dream of a bigger one, but if I could add a library room… mmm… excuse me while I have a moment… ๐Ÿ™‚

    But, until then, we grow our library slowly and visit the public library OFTEN!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks, Auntie Lala! We miss you!

Holy cow!! Great use of visuals to help explain the proposed budget cuts and their actual impact on the overall budget.

You’ll never fold tshirts the same way again!

If you ever wanted to hear someone put a mommy’s day into a song, try this one! (I guarantee you’ll laugh your butt off.)

A little on the political side, but interesting nonetheless…
