Owen loves to read and the different reading programs I've had him involved in this summer have only increased his love for books. He earns a gift card to Half Price Books for every week he completes the program. He's participated every single week this summer and therefore has been rewarded with several new books. He looks forward to Saturday mornings when we go to the book store to let him make his selections. We also check out several books from the library each week. I'm amazed at how quickly and easily he memorizes lines to the stories. I sure wish I could memorize that easily. Imagine how many Bible verses I could have stored away!

Every night after Aubrey goes to bed Owen and I sit on the couch and read for at least an hour. And we never read the same book twice in one sitting. So he reads A LOT of books! I'm always looking for good books to introduce him to, so if you have any favorites please give us some recommendations!
I have been going back and forth for several weeks about which Story Time to put Owen in. He loves going to the library. The toddler story time is fine. He enjoys it. They sing lots of songs which he especially likes, but the books are pretty young for him. However, Aubrey is getting to the age where she really likes it. I know she won't notice if we quit going, but she loves song time and it's nice to see her have fun. We may start making a couple of trips to the library!
