Some of my favorite childhood summer memories are wrapped within books. The summer before sixth grade I spent doodling and imagining hot air balloons thanks to Twenty-One Balloons. Agh, and I can't forget the summer I read Old Yeller for the first time. I was so shocked by the ending.
Having the time to soak in a good book is a real joy around our house, and I'm doing all I can to make sure that my kids have time and space to make reading something special. C had her first bookclub meeting last night, and she was excited to talk about her book with friends. Ramona Quimby, Age 8 is up next, and I'm looking forward to her enjoying all of Ramona's antics.
I'm traveling around a bit this week to visit some wonderful blogs, and today, I'm over at The Happy Family Movement. They have an awesome summer bucket list challenge going on, and I had to join in when Jenny put out the offer.
Take a gander at some of the wonderful ideas they have over at The Happy Family Movement for a blissful summer!
