I am so proud to say that I have completed my very first read-a-thon!! I really had a great time, despite the fact that I did not meet my goals and had many distractions! We have an amazing piece of artwork that the kids are proud of, hanging in what will be our new reading area. I was able to relax and enjoy some books, and ultimately de-stress (at least a bit) from a stressful few weeks. All, and all, it was a great time and I have every intention of coming back (hopefully stronger!) in the next one. Oh, and did I mention I even won a prize?!?! Yep! It's been good!!
Well, here is our wrap-up numbers along with a picture of our final reading tree . . .
Tif's Progress Report
Time Spent Reading: 4 hours, 4 minutes*
Pages Read: 189 pages*
Posts Written: 9 (6 read-a-thon related, 2 reviews, 1 wish list)
Stories Completed: 1*
*These three numbers I was not personally happy with! I surpassed my goal of the 7 posts written, but the rest was very disappointing. I simply feel that there were too many distractions, even after the kids went to bed! BUT . . . check out the kids' progress!!
Kids' Progress Report
