Sights of Summer
My children anxiously await the first backyard camp-out of the summer. They have the camping genes from their father's side, not mine! Last weekend, Andy decided Sunday night would be the "Welcome Summer" camp-out. He put up the tent and built a fire, while the kids brought out their sleeping bags, pillows, and a plethora of stuffed animals.
My heart was filled with joy as reading is not mom, dad, or teacher initiated. It's part of who they are. They are living literate lives! Thanks to all the teachers and mentors who have touched my children this year. You have changed their lives and are better for having you as their mentor!!!
