1) What’s gotten my attention this week?
The Pioneer Library System. I take my kids to the library. We play there. We read books there, but I just recently got us a library card. Honestly the reason I haven’t gotten one before now is I was scared the kids would tear up the books or I would rack up late fees. Plus we have a good amount of books at home.
My son has been able to read words for awhile. I wanted to work with him on reading short sentences. None of our books at home were working quite right. So off to the library we went to get a card.
We started with checking out some of the “We Both Can Read” books. The left page is more in depth for the parent to read and the right is more simple for the child to read. My son did well with those. So we checked out a few more and a phonics book. You guys, this week my son read a book cover to cover all by himself!!!
So since the Pioneer Library System is having a summer reading program, we will for sure be participating. It kicks off with events and parades on June 1st.
2) What blog should you check out?
Tony Meets Meats. With Memorial weekend upon us, I promise if you are planning to grill at this summer this is the most appropriate blog recommendation for you to check out. Tony posts his creative and experimental meat recipes, mostly grilled or smoked. I mean, the man is doing things like filling avocados with eggs. Then wrapping them in bacon, and throwing the whole thing on the grill. He is always surprising me with what he comes up with, and everything looks freakin’ delicious. He’s really a lot of fun to follow.
3) What’s been going on this week?
Work and kids, again. This is what I put for last week too. Work has been busy. When I get home our routine has been to have dinner, water the garden, read, do some Cosmic Kids Yoga, and try to squeeze in one grown up show before bed. I’m behind on reading blogs too. I’ll catch up soon!
4) What’s going on this weekend?
An anniversary and graduation celebration. My best friends oldest son is graduating high school. Crazy! We will be going to a reception for him. Later this weekend we are having a family cookout to celebrate my mom and stepdad’s 25th wedding anniversary. So many milestones! Congratulations guys!!!
