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?!
