We finished book #6 on the way to our last camping trip of the season at Blue Mounds State Park. The husband often laments that he only gets to hear pieces of the books we read given that he’s seldom home when we are reading them. The kids really liked this one and we could have likely finished it much quicker had I not felt a bit touched out when it came to reading aloud. I’ve cut myself a bit of slack though, I’ve been a reading machine for the last year or so. Everyone deserves a bit of a break.
We began #7, “The Lightning Thief” by Rick Riordan, around the campfire on that same trip and have made pretty good time along the way. The husband is again, sad that he won’t get to hear the rest of the story!
The Read Aloud Project will continue even if we’re not homeschooling because I think it’s that important.
