Reading Time

Part of Will’s homework every night is to read a book that his teacher sends home. I finally got the bright idea that he should be reading his book to his siblings — it gives him good practice using expression as he reads to an “audience.” The real reason I thought of it though?? It gets me out of going through the whole routine of reading everyone a story at bedtime — how terrible does that make me sound as a mom?! 🙂 They love it though and bedtime goes even faster than usual now.
They looked so cute tonight that I had to snap a picture. They are dressed in their headbands and robes because they were Jedi Will, Jedi Weslea, and Jedi Wyatt until I made them come down for a bedtime snack and story.
