WELCOME! I hope you enjoy sharing in the joy, frustrations and huge learning curve that I am experiencing as a mother. Through the 9 years of being a mom, I have appreciated those who not only listened, but also have helped by offering encouraging words and ideas. Because of past help I have recieved, I decided to pass on ideas at least once a week and hopefully get some more from YOU! If you know of other parents who would appreciate this-please share it with them. Let's enjoy the journey.
My kids are excited about a couple of reading programs this summer.
1st -- Library Summer Reading program. I'm sure all Libraries have some program that encourages reading. We get coupons, and this is for even the adults, each week if we read so many hours. It's so great. At the end of the summer there is a fun party. My kids look forward to it every year.
2nd --I've had several e-mails about the the Borders Books. Here is the link to the form:
After your child reads 10 books - they get a FREE book from Borders! On the bottom of the form there is specific books that you child can choose from. This is for children 12 and under. Most of the books are chapter books but hey it's a free book to work towards!
3rd --The Read and Win Program
For Children 6-12 years old. Deadline is July 22nd. Read 10 books and receive a free ticket to the Utah State Fair in SLC. For a form you can e-mail Jamie at firstname.lastname@example.org The state fair is Sept. 9-19.
Any other ideas? I would love them in the comments!
