What We Are Reading

We haven't seemed to have read quite as much this month and I'm not sure why. But, we have read the next three books by Tomie DePaola - What a Year, Things Will Never Be the Same, and I'm Still Scared. The kids enjoyed all of them and they are a quick and easy read, but interesting. Then we read Tilly's Strange Secret by Christine Noble Govan. It is the third in the series about Polly and Jenny and Tilly from  The Pink Maple House -- which is one of our favorites. Then we read Little Pear by Eleanor Frances Lattimore about a little boy in China. And last of all for this month is The Curious Clubhouse by Christine Govan. We have enjoyed all the books, though none of them have made it to our list of favorites. 

We decided to track our time on our bookmark by the month. Since this is the last day of January we will reset the timer on the bookmark tomorrow. We read 20 hours and 11 minutes this month. It has been kind of fun keeping track and we will reset and start all over tomorrow. Bethany always remembers to have me get the bookmark timer and start it -- something kind of fun about seeing how many hours you read each month. 

Still no computer. Maybe by the end of the week. I really miss taking pictures and loading them on my computer. But, again, I will post a few old pictures that were in folders on Bill's computer. They are all from 2011.

Sarah, Bethany, Jordan, Claire and Caroline on our front steps. 


























And last of all a picture I took of Bethany on my bed.
