Make a Splash....Read!

Saturday I finally took Potato to our newest local library. Its amazing! I can't tell you the last time I had a library card. Well now its very important that I have one because I don't have disposable funds to buy books and we read entirely too much.

I signed us up for a card and let Potato loose in the huge children's section(which is have of the library) and he picked what seemed like 20 books. I even sat on the floor with him and read a few because he just wasn't having it that we had to wait until we got home to read. I know that all of the stories are make him progress mentally and well I love to see him oooh and ahhh while pointing at everything on the pages.

They are having a summer reading program and mommy and daddy need to read at least 10 minutes a day to him and when we get to 320 minutes we get a prize and 640 a better prize. We keep track by bubbling in our "Lets make a Splash" worksheet. So far we have 4 bubbles. Each bubble is worth 10 minutes.

I plan on going once a week to swap out books for Potato. I really love that this can be something that Clayton and I can share. This Saturday the Library is having a Zoo on Wheels show and I really can't wait to see what animals they bring. They will also be having a story telling time that we plan to attend. Pictures to come.

PS Lots of exciting things will be happening in the next 4 days so make sure to tune in!

  1. I LOVE that idea! I wish ourlibrary had something like that. Monkey is so busy, I sometimes (often) forget to read to him as much as I should.
