Read-A-Thon Check-In #1

I thought it was about time to post an update!! Things have been going slower than I had expected this morning, but we are still making progress and that is what matters! I've almost finished my first book (though I will admit that it was one that I was half-way done with before the read-a-thon started). It's a more difficult read, one that I can't get into as much as I would like with two kids hanging off my arms!! Oh well!! The next book should be one that I can easily get lost in!! Anyways, here's the latest numbers. I will post a picture of our Reading Tree the next time I post.

The Kids' Progress Report

Books Read: 5
Leafs Complete: 6*

*Leaves are greater than books when I read a book out loud to both kids. They both get to make their own leaf for the Reading Tree!


  1. Books are awesome
