Oh we love to read around here. Once a week we hit up our local library and check out a healthy amount of books. Walking back to the car is usually a struggle – I bet it’s humorous watching me wrangle my two sons and a giant bag filled with books back to my van! BUT that trek is totally worth it. It’s one of my favorite days because when we get home all of my kids sit and gobble up these books for at least an hour. It’s the funnest thing to watch! My daughter is reading now and she feels so proud of herself with each new book that she reads unassisted. I love watching her read and giggle at the different stories. I pick out special ones with each kiddo in mind and she always asks, “which ones are for me!” My oldest is now into fiction books and completely absorbs facts about plants and animals – he teaches me new amazing things all the time because of how often he reads! And my little boys? Pick any book with a construction vehicle – or any vehicle! – and they will almost always sit on my lap and listen to the story again and again (and again!)
This is such a normal activity for our family and I realized I haven’t photographed it! It gave me so much joy to open up the windows, get out my camera and capture my kids reading to each other and just enjoying all our fun new library books for the week. Plus, this is something I definitely never want to forget. Our family at this stage is so very fun and I am so grateful!
