For some time now the books in my house have been growing. Not intellectual books of great theology or philosophy like it was back before children. No, it is the best collection of picture books and chapter books that appeal to boys. Trucks, monsters, mysteries, cars, etc.... Being in the fourth grade now, the boys are making the transition from picture to chapter books (which I find to be sad since that means they are growing up on me!) The book case in their room was taken over by toys and the books ended up in my bedroom.
I have always wanted one of the spine bookshelves that are popular these days. After looking around and talking myself into one, I ordered it the first of February. Mine arrived in the mail this past week. This one is a SEI Metal Spine-style Book Tower from Amazon. Dennis, the boys, and I put it together last night. It was a family event and it was very easy to put together. (This is ALWAYS a necessity in my house!) Plus, it is metal and very, very sturdy!!! (Again, a necessity with 10 year old boys!)
(I don't know why that basket is on the floor! Why is it you notice things in a picture that you don't see in real life?!) Now, the trick is to get these boys reading!!! They assured me last night that I needed to quit buying them books. Silly boys, like that is going to happen!!
A very special thank you to my sweet husband that put this together for me and did not complain one bit about doing so! He is the BEST!!
Happy weekend everyone - read a good book today!
SIX WORD SATURDAY
Happy Books, Happy Mom, Happy Day!
