Future Fun

Creating readers within my family is not only a goal of mine, but a passion as well.  I'm documenting how quickly they are advancing, as evidenced here.

Madison loves reading just as much as we do.
Zoe is trying really really hard to hold it up.
Eli, already has his nose in a good book.  I assume given who the author is, it's going to be good; I'll read it as soon as I finish my current read.
I think he's trying to understand the lack of pictures.  Or he's a speed reader.  ;)
And me.  I would have added my husband, too, but he wasn't home.
Obviously, unless you really think my three-year-old is quite advanced, they aren't really reading Raven Boys.  I do hope someday, though, they will be interested in reading it, or any book for that matter.  I'll be honest, I took the pictures for a giveaway Maggie Stiefvater, author of Raven Boys and one of my favorite books, The Scorpio Races, was doing.  But then I thought, there's more to this than that.  They turned in a glimpse of what I hope for my children's future, and Madison's, if she had the capability.  I do think she enjoys listening to stories being read, though.  She will come into Eli's room at bedtime with us.  I like to think it's for the story; allow me that delusion, please.



  1. Much better than my hastily taken, somewhat fuzzy pic where my cat was trying to *knock over* my kindle (out of love, I assume ...). I'm sure Madison is there for the stories. What else? ;)

    1. Haha! Now I just have to get mine in the mail. :) And I do imagine Maddie loves the stories. Truth be told, I used to read to her before I had kids. Poor puppy has been putting up with me for quite a while. lol


Thank you so much for taking your time to share your thoughts! I try to respond to everyone. :)
