One thing I really want to get back to is reading to Jessica and Benjamin. I've kinda left that by the wayside a bit, but now the plan is an hour of reading each weeknight. We started last night with one of my FAVORITE books -- Understood Betsy by Dorothy Canfield. This is my third time reading it aloud :-) I will get Jessica and Benjamin to choose another couple of books each for when we've finished this one.
As for me, I love to read historial fiction and Christian fiction. Whatever I can get at the library will make up some of my list of books for this year. Also, my mom (who is away teaching right now) always brings a few boxes of books when she comes home for the summer. Can't wait for that! New books :-)
I also have The Encyclopedia of Country Living by Carla Emery, that I want to get through. Others that I want to read (some are re-reads) are:
~~ To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee -- I read this one in highschool but want to read again.
~~ Chronicles of Narnia, by C.S. Lewis -- another set that I read as a teenager.
~~ Even Greater, by Reinhard Bonnke
~~ Take Control of Your Health, by Joseph Mercola
~~ Florence Nightingale, by Laura E. Richards
~~ Still Alice, by Lisa Genova
~~ Laying Down the Rails (Charlotte Mason Habits Handbook), by Sonya Shafer
~~ The Book of Negroes, by Lawrence Hill
I'm sure I'll have more to add this year, but this'll do for a start :-)
