Hello and happy back to school season!
Tonight I kissed my boys goodnight before their first day of school tomorrow. They will awake to new teachers, a new school (for one), and so much excitement as they enter 5th and 3rd grade.
We had an absolutely fantastic summer filled with family, sun, the lake, and of course books too! There is something magical about reading throughout the summer. So many choices: what to read, when and where to read, oh the possibilities. In my mind, there is nothing like reading outside with the sun gently warming your skin.
We did a lot of reading this summer and had some memorable books to pass along. Quinn and Keegan each are proud to share their favorites:
Big Nate Series by Lincoln Pierce
The Squish Series by Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm
And best of all Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone
And now Keegan happily shares his favorite reads this summer-
El Deafo by Cece Bell, Frankie Pickle and the Closet of Doom by Eric Wright and Scooby Doo Howling on the Playground by Gail Herman
And together we read and LOVED Small Steps by Louis Sachar
So as we begin a brand new school year my heart is warmed by the memories of the summer we had together as a family, the adventures we shared, the memories we shared, and the stories we read. I hope your summer was filled with joy, warmth, and great stories!
Here’s to the new school year and the many books we explore together.
