|Nicely tucked up together for a nap.|
liked this one.
The recycling bags got filled up very quickly but I also put all the winter tops that I won't be able to wear this winter into a bag to be tucked away till next year. The younger girls were then more than happy to help vacuum the room and so when Brendon got home he had a nice surprise. I got a little scowl about moving the furniture but we reassured him that we did not strain at all and did not lift anything heavy. I was so busy with my sorting and cleaning today that I did not take photos other than the one of the cats. So I have decided to update you on some of the books I have been reading to the girls over the last few weeks.
We all enjoyed A Grain of Rice and read it in one day. I was really impressed with Ruth's "re-telling" when Dad got home. She remember so many details that it really surprised me.
The Boxcar Children was a huge success with all the girls. They were so disappointed when it was finished. Only when loading this photo did I see the little #1 on the book. Our local library has a few of the series which I have now ordered and I now the girls will be so excited when we pick them up.
These books are from the bag that we borrowed from our friends in Timaru. I am so thankful for the needed jump start in getting reading to the girls. It's been nice that most of the books appeal to all of the girls - even Hannah. Now I just need to get a start on all the wonderful science books they lent us. :-)
