Snowy Day Reading
Yesterday school was called off. We received 11 inches of snow, and snow is falling again this morning. As much as being stranded at home does get old after a while, it is perfect weather for cuddling up with some good books. I especially enjoyed my first grader's obsessive reading of Junie B. Jones yesterday. She read 5 of them! At one point Junie refers to someone as 88 years young and my daughter was laughing hysterically at this. Somehow that really struck her funny bone because she was bent over at the waist laughing and laughing and laughing. I managed to read one book and run nine and a half miles on the treadmill where I got some serious reading in, too.
