Our family just love reading together. We have stacks of books all over the house. Even Geneva yells at me to read to her. We've been reading the chapter series Sarah Plain and Tall, and are now starting the 4th book More Perfect Than the Moon. So, this summer we participated in several reading programs. Barnes and Noble gives children a free book when they log that they've read 8 books. So, Maddie now has a new book about ocean animals that she loves. Our local library also gives away little coupon books to kids that read 15 books. Now we have had fun getting "free" stuff this summer.
The kids get to place their shoe on the library window when they complete the program.
One of our free coupons was used yesterday- breakfast at Bob Evans!
The girls loved their chocolate chip piggie pancakes.
We also got free ice cream at Shake Shack last night (yesterday was a very food-friendly day :)
Soon we're going to a water park and mini golf for free, too.
For our family day, we went to Quantico to explore the Marine Corps Museum.
It was pretty amazing.
My lil soldiers. We left very thankful for the men and women that serve our country. As we drove away Maddie said, "I don't think I'm brave enough to be a Marine."
