summer reading challenge

Mark worked on his drawing and enlarging skills for our poster

Over the summer our local Library and zoo are doing a dinosaur and dragon theme and I wanted to up the stakes by offering an additional challenge to the family. Our goal is to read 35 books collectively with our reward being a trip to the beach downtown. I despise going downtown if I can help it so its kind of a big deal. Between mission trips, VBS and the county fair our holiday is already filled so the kids will need to hustle if they would like to go before all of it has ended. Summer seems to be the shortest season here so it can easily get too cold for outdoor swimming by the last week of August.

We are already 3 books in going strong. Three more will be added by the end of this week by Koda, Beanie and Mark. I am glad to see my family with their noses in a book vs their phones or tablets. Baby steps!
