Kids That Love to Read

I first have to start this post off by saying that I don't do this nearly as often as I should, but my kids sure do LOVE reading time.

I know how important it is to read with our children, but honestly, by the time they're ready to read I'm all out of gas for the day.

It was so nice the other day to just sit and read with Lexi in the middle of the day. I told her to bring me two books so we could read and she brought over like 10. Funny girl. I need to start making a habit of it again because I really believe it helps our children learn to read themselves.
There certainly bonuses to being the first born because Ethan and I read all the time, poor child #2 & 3. This picture will be my new motivation to remember to try and read to them more often. I'm not going to make a goal and say everyday because then I'll just get disappointed with myself, but I'm going to make a conscious effort to read to them more often. Who doesn't like to be read to?

That is such a sweet picture. It's so true, by the time bed time rolls around I just want to get it over with, not be reading 20 books. I like your goal. It's a good one.
