First of all, the brain does not function correctly or with any amount of speed whatsoever; and as much as you try, it can't seem to make the connection from the words on the page to the part of the brain that comprehends those words. I have read many sentences over. Numerous times. Unfortunately, that means lots of time spent "reading" equals itty bitty number of pages read. Ah well. I read on with happiness.
Since I last updated, Randi finished another book, Beezus and Ramona by Beverly Cleary. I'm sure she's read it before, but it's been a while. As she giggled throughout the book, I remembered how much fun it is to read about Ramona. So, that's 2 books down for Randi. I'm pretty sure that's it for her tonight. She's so tired that she's not feeling so great. She wants to read more, but it's just not happening. She's off to bed!
Sydney is back to reading again after a lengthy break. She is reading Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw by Jeff Kinney. As much as I love to see her reading, it is late and I will be prompting her to bed soon.
It's been so awesome reading with my girls today. That has been the best part of this challenge - our time spent together.
