You know this family is all about the book reading by now, right? This summer we are doing a few reading challenges. Each boy is working on reading/listening to about 30 books for their at-home challenge. For this one, they are coloring the posters I made for them. Ethan is also working through a challenge given by a local bookstore. Originally he was just going to do 5 books for that to fill out this bingo sheet, but he decided to try for every book to *hopefully* win a $50 gift card to the store. This one is causing him to read some different books than he would normally pick out. Also, both boys are doing a reading challenge put on by our library. It’s basically reading at least 8 books and doing a few activities (i.e. making a creation, playing a new game).
Side note: I also included a mini picture of my goodreads goal for the year. I had set it for 40 books (knowing that a lot would be kids novels), but I reached the goal in June. So, I’ve made my new goal 75 by the end of the year! =) This should make my parents feel really good since they have been hoping I would like to read one day… 😉
Mike and I are hoping that if we start doing lots of ridiculous dab moves, the boys will find it super weird and stop doing it. It’s not working…
We had the opportunity to meet my friend’s new baby, Zion. He’s absolutely darling and Micah LOVES to hold him. Fun side note – my parents got to meet him a good week before we did because Gina stayed in their condo in Florida during the adoption process…waiting to be allowed back in Colorado. =)
I stained my table box and I love it. Thanks again, Dad!
Ethan got his staples removed on Sunday. He was nervous, but it didn’t end up hurting too badly!
And Micah circled all of our ages…and that’s whenI realized Mike is turning 35 this year!!
Last, but not least, we have baby bunnies running around the neighborhood and I want one for my pet. One got a little confused when we were outside watching it and it actually ran across my foot. I restrained myself from grabbing it and taking it inside with us.
