Several weeks ago I was reading a post by Mrs. B that really peeked my interest. She has a BOS that she passes back and forth with her child. I knew right away that my Ladybug would love the idea of us sharing a notebook full of information. We just started at the beginning of this week, so it definitely still a work in progress. She even asked me this morning "Mommy, when are you going to write in our book again?" (And yes my teen actually still calls me Mommy) It was just too sweet. I'll have to post again once we get things more solid.
Several months ago, Ladybug borrowed my book To Ride a Silver Broomstick, by Silver RavenWolf. I was curious how her reading was going, since she hadn't been asking very many questions lately. She informed me that, this past month of school she's been very busy and hasn't had time to read anything that isn't school work. I can't even begin to tell you how pleased I am that she puts her school work first! But I'm also kind of sad that she hasn't had time to pursue other things. We chatted and came up with a plan. School will be over in two and a half weeks, with lots of free time in the summer. We are going to start the book from the beginning together. Writing and sharing our thoughts about what we're reading. I'm looking forward to this special time Ladybug and I have carved out of the day for each other. With the size of our family, sometimes she and my stepdaughter get looked over too often. I think it's because they are growing into independent young women, who don't want their parents hovering.
