Early Bird

Tired of reading the same books every night--I picked out something new for Owen and me to start reading.

A classic book written by E. B. White, called Charlotte's Web.

The story of a little girl, Fern, and a pig she calls "Wilbur."

It's perfect for an almost four-year-old boy. There's plenty of farm animals, a quick-moving storyline, and not too many pages between illustrations.

There just may be a life lesson or two tucked within the pages as well.

Here's Avery, Fern's brother, coming down for breakfast and realizing that Fern got a pig.

"Can I have a pig too, Pop?" asked Avery.

"No, I only distribute pigs to early risers," said Mr. Arable. "Fern was up at Daylight, trying to rid the world of injustice. As a result, she now has a pig. A small one, to be sure, but nevertheless a pig. It just shows what can happen if a person gets out of bed promptly."

Well, I'm now even more committed to my new summer goal of getting out of bed earlier in the morning.

I wonder what wonderful things will happen in my early summer mornings?!

All I know is that you will be able to spend more time with that man you married each morning.

Okay, I don't know if I should admit this but last night I had a dream that all I had left to do to pass my English class was write a book report on Charlotte's Web...uuuhhhh...

I know I wish I could get up earlier. We make up for it by staying up late. ;) Way to be a good mom and read to Owen all the time.
