What We're Reading!
Well, we're sick again! All four of us this time. With less than a week until our big trip to Ohio, we are shaking off what is left of our most recent cold. I'm hoping that we are all in the clear before we leave on Tuesday. With Austin's asthma, I really don't want to leave him behind with a flare up ready and able to happen at any moment.
While we are all under the weather, so was the rest of Northern California! We have been having some very unusual, almost Midwestern weather. Complete with thunder and lightning storms, and a supposed tornado-watch, just over the hills from us. Of course, all this makes for great reading weather!
Two is for Twins. This was a birthday gift to the twins by Makayla's Physical and Vision Therapists. Although the gift was very thoughtful, personally, I'm not a big fan of this book. Something about the drawings creep me out a little and the words to the book doesn't flow off my tongue easily...but, what I think about it does not mater, because the kiddos are crazy about this book. I cannot even tell you how many times Makayla and Austin have demanded that we read it to them. It's a bit longer than a lot of other books we have read, which I think is part of why they like it so much. And although I do not care for the drawings, Makayla loves to point out all the details, and goes on and on (in Twineese, not English) about all the things she's finding.
