Summer Reading Wrap-Up

Hey, guys.  Told y'all I've been in a blogging funk.  Didn't even get a chance to post my little flashback on Friday.  Maybe this week.


We wrapped up M's summer reading a few days ago.  I'll be honest -- I've been bad about recording all the books this summer.  We didn't get anywhere close to the goal I set for this year (only recorded a little over 1,000 pages this time), but thankfully it was enough to get the exact prize she wanted:


...a baton -- which happens to be the same summer reading prize she chose last year.  Silly girl.


We also turned in her Barnes and Noble summer reading log.


She earned her free book. (She chose a dinosaur book. Not surprised.).


She also asked me to buy a book from her current movie obsession, Beauty and the Beast.  She knows every single line from that movie, but she doesn't own the book.  So I got it.  Like we need more books in that room of hers...

So anyhoo, although we didn't quite get in as much as I wanted this summer, it was still another successful year of summer reading.  Summer reading rocks and we can't wait to do it (even better) next year! (See last year's summer reading wrap-up here.)

{{{As for me, I finished Water for Elephants this morning.  I'll probably rent the movie in a few days.  I like Reese Witherspoon, so I'm sure she makes a great Marlena.}}}

Have a good week, y'all.

  1. I think you may have you a little archaeologist on your hands with M's love for dinosaurs and other reptiles.. or maybe a vet? Possibilities are endless for her.

  3. Is she getting taller everytime you post pics? Beauty and the Beast is my favorite movie! I just had to get my kids hooked on that one. We could watch it all day.
    M is a reading machine!!
