The Magic of Learning to Read

  • July 18, 2014 2:51 pm

I have a grandson whose parents read to him since he was born. Last year he started kindergarten but was still a little reluctant to read on his own.

Maybe four months ago his family bought some baby chicks and this little grandson discovered his life ambition–to become a chicken farmer! Not only did he he love taking care of these little critters, he also discovered that there were books about chickens in the public library. He checked out every book he could find about chickens…and ducks…and goats…and every other kind of animal, especially farm animals.

He has now become an expert on chickens…and he LOVES to read! Ahhhh, the magic of reading!

A Perfect Summer Day

  • July 11, 2014 6:43 am

This was my daughter’s Facebook most recent post:

“We took a trip to the library, the kids played in the fountains while I visited with a friend I ran into there, then we came home danced in the rain and ate watermelon slushies. After dinner we put on a horse rodeo in our basement where we were the horses and performed all sorts of tricks. Then the boys showed me a few of their very best magic tricks before I sent them to bed. Days like today help me to remember that I really do have the best job in the world.”

Can you think of a more perfect day?

 

Look Up!

We had our California grandkids out for a two-week visit, and we had a ball! One of the things we did was attend an air show, with stunt pilots cavorting across the sky and a magnificent performance of the Thunderbirds. Here’s a picture of me watching with amazement at the sight. I think one of the grandkids caught me in this pose and took my picture.

Creative Play

I love living in small town Utah. Driving down the streets, I see lots and lots of kids outside doing kid stuff during the summer–riding bikes and scooters, playing in the sprinklers, selling lemonade and cherries at little roadside tables they set up, etc. What a great way for a child to spend summer vacation–enjoying the out of doors, not staying inside playing video games.

Hooray for Pinterest

Don’t you just love Pinterest! In the good old days a mother was basically on her own when it came to figuring out fun, inexpensive activities and crafts for kids during the summer. Pinterest has come to the rescue!

Here’s one fun Pinterest board that has tons of ideas:

Once again, I must applaud Jean Van’t Hul and her blog, “The Artful Parent.” It is packed with great ideas for parents, who want to help their children develop their innate creativity.
