February started with a bang as we added one more reader to the house. My four-year-old has been vigorously reading as many one-vowel readers that I can set in front of him. His older brothers have each inched their way into the next level of books. And their sister? Well, in the first three days of the month, she's already checked three books off her TO READ list.

The weatherman has predicted another unprecedentedly cold week ahead of us here in Mayberry. So, chances are, we'll have plenty of time to turn a few pages. Here's what we're reading...
Justin Morgan Had a Horse- After much deliberation and a family vote, we decided to begin this precious based-on-a-true-story tale of Little Bud, the granddaddy of the Morgan breed of horses. We're only a few chapters in, but once again, Marguerite Henry's unembellished-style of writing has grabbed us all.
Treasuring God in Our Traditions-I'm trapped somewhere between "I just finished a great book" and "When will my requested book be available at the library?" And as I can't spend too long without my nose in a good read, I chose a short, quick book to keep me company while I wait for the other one. I'm callin' this my REBOUND book.
Sweetie Pea-5th Grade
Beautiful Girlhood- (Mom assigned book) This was a book I've had on my "someday" list for quite sometime. Now that she has officially hit the TWEEN years, I am slowly introducing a few of the titles from the next stage of my Titus 2 mothering plan to my beautiful girl.
Mustang: Wild Spirit of the West- (Read for fun book)
Super Boy-2nd Grade
Stone Fox- (Mom assigned book) This is my son's first leap out of leveled readers and into a REAL chapter book. I chose one that I knew would appeal to his sense of adventure. A boy...a dog...and a sled dog race...
Scary Snakes- (Read for fun book) This certainly isn't my first choice for a "fun" book, but it's right up his alley and that's just fine by me.
Blonde Warrior-1st Grade
The Long Way Westward- (Mom assigned reader)
Scholastic Phonics Ready Readers 1-12
