It’s summer so we’re on vacation from homeschooling, so I should have more time to blog, not less, right? Somehow it hasn’t worked out that way.
Seems like I spend half the day writing down book titles in reading log books. My eldest two daughters signed up for the summer reading program at our public library, and in the first week filled up the log book that was supposed to last all summer.
Don’t get me wrong; I’m thrilled to death they’re reading. I just kind of wish it wasn’t mostly Scooby Doo and Berenstain Bears and Arthur books that they finish in five minutes and come running to me demanding I write the titles in the log. It also amazes me that a few stickers and cheesy prizes could inspire so much literacy that they’ve practically forgotten about SpongeBob and all the other horrid cartoons they usually want to watch.
See? Evil right wingers do like some government institutions.
