I just wanted to document what the kids are reading.
Packer – Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Big Nate, Wonder. Got sick of Harry Potter on book 2.
Benji – read every Brandon Mull book! EVERY SINGLE ONE. Better than HP even though he is a big HP fan! He has also read Rick Riordan. He is reading the Beyonders now.
Cali is trying to read all of the Battle of the Books books. She and I have been reading Mr. Poppers Penguins at night when we get to bed on time.
Rose has started to like to read. She and I are trying to read together but I need more hours in my day.
Millie just listens to whatever the girls are doing.
Ray and Tiago have piles of books on their beds that they “read” at night 🙂
Liv and Maddie. ALL of our kids were obsessed with this show during November and December.
Who do you want to be? Liv? Maddie? Parker? Karen?
Even Tiago was quoting Parker and his tunnels: Bam what? Mission accomplished.
I am happy to report that the phase is over. Christmas vacation is great for switching up routines! and we got lots of new games to get out of the TV rut.
Ray comes home from school with big wood chips -they are in his pockets, or backpack. He thinks they are so cool. Love this Kindergarten mind.
He was so happy to finally get his wrestling singlet!
President Russell M. Nelson: The 17th president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He was called and sustained on Sunday the 14th of January and then on Tuesday they had a broadcast from the temple to announce him and his counselors and then a news conference to answer any questions. It was such a great and uplifting morning! I thank God for a Prophet to guide us in these latter days! Dallin H Oaks and Henry B Eyring are the new counselors. President Monson will be missed.
Carol and Larry made me a TETHER BALL!! They had one in their backyard so I’ve been begging for one. I told them I’m good for the money to cover the cost and they came through and delivered it the first weekend in January!!
Ben wanted to build a workshop area in the basement but we never communicated that to the contractor doing the basement. Ben’s Dad got word of it and talked with Ben and HE BUILT IT! It fit like a glove and looks great. Ben was so excited to organize his tools like his dad does 🙂
