CONFESSION TIME: The beach, the park, the county fair, and lots and lots of sun this past month have left quite a thick layer of dust on our stack of books. We've tried to nab moments of literary adventure here and there as we've been able, BUT, with summer passing at supersonic speed I'm OK with letting the dust settle a bit longer in order that we can savor a few more moments running, swimming, and scratching mosquito bites in the sun.

Here's what awaits us whenever we come inside.
Read Aloud- Everybody
Rabbit Hill- Similar to the sweet adventures of a classic Beatrix Potter tale, this book has been on my TO READ list for quite some time. We're finally getting around to it.
Jamie- that's me!
Conform- This highly controversial new book from Glenn Beck has me staying up until well past midnight each night. It's the kind of book that has me elbowing The Hubs and reading large portions of it aloud to him...whether he likes it or not. It is an eye-opening look at the hijacking of our country's educational system.
Sweetie Pea- 6th grade
Super Boy- 3rd grade
Turn on the Light, Thomas Edison- He's got about two more chapters left in the book he began last month.
Then, it's onto to...
Blonde Warrior- 2nd Grade
Greased Lightning- Kindergarten
Step Into Reading Phonics First Steps, set 2- This is a series of graduated phonetical readers that comes in a boxed set.
That's what we'll be dusting off during the month of August every chance we get. What about you?
