Schools Out For Summer

Last Day finally came.

Many adorable wee children from the neighborhood are suddenly growing up and headed off to Middle School next year.  What has happened here?!  It seems like only yesterday they were cracking me up in the half day kindergarten carpool.  Wow!

So, now that summer is here…

it

The Van Meter Summer Reading Challenge that is.  Here is the new poster:

2017 Summer Family Reading Challenge

Yay!

I’ll try to report back, maybe their will be an upset this year and my daughter won’t mop the floor with the rest of us like last year🙂

Hub was that nice inconspicuous A-Team van… you know,  say you’re a crack commando unit, framed for a crime you didn’t commit and you need lay low after escaping from a maximum security stockade… This van is ideal, especially if you’re averse to flying.  Who needs to fly when you’ve got this sweet ride?!

Alright, I digress, anyway, my son was the DeLorean and my mom (Pa Jane) was a little Harry Potter man, on his little broom.

Mine was the Little House on the Prairie, Schooner.  Quick sidetrack; This spring I dressed up in a Laura Ingalls era dress, (that I’d grabbed out of my mom’s closet) for my chat and chew group – 2nd graders, we were discussing Big Woods… Anyhoo, Ma Ingalls may never have experienced the joy and countless wonders of our modern activewear, but after a couple of hours in her dress, I was definitely ready for some yoga pants.

-and we’re back-

I love the summer reading challenge!  Hub isn’t a big fan, but definitely a good sport… that’s why he gets the short trail:)     Happy Reading Everybody!Image result for posters library books

  1. Love the summer reading plan!

    Have you tried playways? It’s a small audio player with one book on it. Great for trips – can find them at the library. Michele
