For the Love of Reading

At first I was disappointed that she didn't appreciate the family hobby of fishing. Then I realized she had discovered a way to spend the time while everyone else fished. I think she made a great choice.

That is a great picture! I love it.
BTW, I fixed the link for you on the Blog Around the World page Michigan page I have been out of town for a few days so I am just now getting to it. I apologize for the snafu...It was totally my fault!

I wish my girl was a reader. It's always down to the wire with the summer reading list!! I believe she would fish all day though!

I am the reader in the family. Right now, I am reading "Robinson Crusoe"....one of my favorites:)

Great picture! Be proud! And I bet someday she will get the urge to try the fishing thing!

nice pic...that would have been me there too..

What a great photo! I'd have to say that if you took me on a fishing trip, I'd probably curl up in the back of the SUV with a good book, too! You should be proud of her for wanting to read on her own. I'm a high school English teacher, and see so many kids who loathe reading--it's really kind of sad!

That's me as a teenager...except she has much better hair.

My kids read like fiends. When we were camping, it was dead silent at times, the three of reading and Mr.4444 napping. Gotta love books! :)
