Is very excited to be done with this book once and for all on Tuesday! It's very rare that Chris finds something that he just doesn't like learning about, but he found it with a vengeance these last two semesters. It's not that he can't understand physics, he just found something that he really has very little interest in. We are very glad that this semester is almost over!
Has decided to read a non-fiction book every month. I've always liked reading, but generally prefer fiction, although if a subject interests me I can usually enjoy a non-fiction book as well. However, I really don't read nearly as much as I wish I did since I've had kids, so I've decided to go back to school and learn some new things on my own. Here's my book for May. Sorry, this is the only picture I could find.
If anyone has any suggestions about other books I should read, please feel free to comment! I need suggestions and am open to most subjects, although I'm leaning toward things that will help me in my role as wife and mother and homemaker right now.
William has been sick quite a bit in the last few months so we have done a lot of reading. William has always loved having me read to him, and in the last while has really progressed beyond wanting just picture books. We have started reading books that have hardly any pictures and that take us a while to read, and he is able to pick up where we left off the time before, and will sit quietly and listen for as long as my voice holds out. One of the books we read I thought was so sweet and beautiful. It's called "The Sea is Blue", and I highly recommend it. I think I enjoy reading with William as much as he enjoys reading with me :).
Unlike William, Isaac has NEVER liked sitting and listening to books. He usually lasts 1-2 pages and then is off to be busy. He is such a doer! Lately, however, I've found that if we lay him in his bed and then read him a book before he goes to sleep then he will gladly read with us. I think that he really likes to be able to see our faces and the book at the same time. He is now very attached to one book:
Good thing I like this book! If I try to read any other book first, he throws a huge fit and won't let me read. As soon as I bring out this book he calms down and lays quietly. If I've read this one to him then he will very happily listen to any other book as long as it has fun pictures. It's funny how particular kids can be!
