While we were at the library yesterday the boys joined their Summer Reading program. All they need to do is record the names of the books, magazines, comic books, etc. that they read or read-a-louds and check off every 15 minutes of reading. The more they read the more opportunities they can be entered into a drawing for gift prizes. One of the prizes is a trip to Atlanta to the aquarium and zoo plus overnight stays for 4. That would be way fun! I'm so glad they've included read-a-louds because all our reading that we do together will be counted then. We are still in The Last of the Mohicans (hello!! sick here...for weeks) so the remainder of our time will apply.
We went grocery shopping yesterday and picked up a few items that we needed to fulfill a few more activities on our 100 Days of Summer 2011. Here are a few hints: lemons, menthos, chocolate bars, and marshmellows
