With only three more months left of the 2014-2015 school year, we are in full boogie mode. Lots of learning happening 'round here. Lots of learning. The gentle sound of a turning page can be heard wafting through the house at any given moment.
We've got our noses in some good books and can't wait to tell you all about them!

March is roaring in with these titles...
Read Aloud- Everybody
The Long Winter- This book selection is a classic case of "misery loves company." This has been a loooooong winter for us here in the midwest. So, we are finding solace in the empathetic words of this American classic. If Laura can make it through one arctic freeze after another, SO CAN WE! (As of yesterday, the snow officially started to melt in our front yard. So, there's hope.)
Jamie- That's me!
The Happy Christian- To be honest, I know nothing about this book. I was listening to our local Christian radio station two weeks ago when the host was interviewing the author. The station announced a giveaway of the book to the third caller. My daughter begged me to call. I did. I won. So, now I'm reading it. I'm only on the first chapter, so the verdict is still out.
Sweetie Pea- 6th Grade
Calico Bush- (Mom assigned book) She is still finishing up the book that I assigned to her last month...sadly, she is kind of trudging through it.
The Babysitter's Handbook- (Read-for-fun book) She is rereading this book that I assigned to her last year because she liked it so much.
Super Boy- 3rd grade
Hero Over Here: A Story of World War I- (Mom assigned book) This is from the Once Upon America series, a collection of historical fictions based on real events in history.
Tanks- (Read-for-fun book) This book is just one in a FANTASTIC non-fiction series put out by Usborne Books. It is a beginner reader collection designed specifically for boys. He's been working his way through the entire series since Christmas and has been loving it!
Blonde Warrior- 2nd grade
Mice of the Herring Bone- (Mom assigned book) I read this whimsical cat and mouse pirate drama to my older two kids several years ago. Now it's my third born's turn to enjoy it.
The Bull and the Fire Truck- (Read-for-fun book)
Greased Lightning- Kindergarten
Reading for Fun Enrichment Library Series- This is a series of 54 graduated readers that corresponds with the phonics program we use.
