Summer Reading Program at the Library Begins

 The boys are once again involved in the summer reading program at our local library.  This year the theme is ‘One World, Many Stories’ and includes a morning entertainment act and an afternoon craft activity from a different country for the kids.
This morning the boys enjoyed a fun magic show put on by Angel Ocasio.  The boys laughed and watched with a large group of kids from Dayton and the surrounding area. Each of the boys completed their first reading log and received their book bags for their efforts.  This is Cameron’s third year and Nathan’s second and both boys are eager to read and listen to stories together. 
Tuesday evening Cameron read 3 Dr. Seuss read-a-louds before bed time to add to his reading log and Nathan listened and helped read “Green Eggs and Ham”   I have set a goal for them of at least 5 hours a week of reading quietly or together with Mommy and Daddy.  I am not including the Scripture Adventure reading in their logs as I want them to set aside time to be in The Word that is not worldly. I know that may seem weird but I needed the separation for them to. We are heading back into town this evening for a concert in the park to celebrate the summer reading program with other friends of the Mary Gilkey Library here in Dayton, Oregon. I hope to post a couple of book reviews for books we read during the program this year to share our love of reading with the blogging community.
