Reading Log Wipeout

Oh our dear Joseph just hasn’t reached the level of loving to read like his older brothers. It is hard to find Elijah and Morgan without a book in hand and it is hard to find Joseph without his spiral notebook drawing some new adventure or writing a story but when it comes to reading he just doesn’t slow down for it. This night it was very late and he still had not read the required short book for his reading log so after a bath, pj’s, and cloths laid out he got comfy in our bed to read. I had him read out loud as I picked up things and it wasn’t long before the air was silent and I saw this

and of course I had to get a picture so that I would have proof

that even though he hasn’t found his love of reading (he’s an illustrator)

he still did or attempted to do his reading log:)

but I think he’ll have to finish Breakfast for Bear at breakfast!

Winter Wonder Wish Comes True!!!

Well I guess I can now say, “If I Blog It, It will come True!!!”.  Yes, we did get some snow!!! not nearly as much as last year but enough to get all bundled up and go make sloshy snow angels and snowmen and have snow ball fights and slide down hills on cardboard-for a short time.  

Looks like they should be on shrimp boats! I think I need to find some snow gear on sale at REI!!!

Yeah us Southerner’s got a little bit of a white winter wonderland!!! Hmmmm, what should I Blog about next????  Perhaps a new sister or brother? Maybe just maybe??? Nah!

Winter Wonder Wish

You know you’re a Southerner when you are actually hoping for a hefty amount of snowfall like this

The snowfall last year was wonderful, they said the most the area has had in 9 years so we would really be suprised to have another white day like this

But look how much delight this snowfall brought

I know many of you are well over the freezing temperatures and being snowed in and without power is no fun winter wonderland but for my Southern family a snow day here is pure joy! See:)

Some of the best parts about having snow is all the memories the children share together for years to come and for my crew they especially enjoy coming back inside to thaw out and change into soft warm pajamas that have been warming in the dryer then having hot cocoa and cuddling up in their favorite blankies to watch either more snow fall or it slowly melt away. Last year we even got to share our Southern Snow with Grammy (originally from Pennsylvania) who drove up for the weekend. She definately does not miss the PA snow!
