Remembering Good Times

I was home alone with Lee the other day, so we took advantage of it and went for a canoe ride. The peacefulness of the water and quietness of the morning really got his mind thinking about times past. Each memory began with, "Remember when......" and each one ended with, ".......you read (fill in the blank with a good book)."

Remember when we took our after harvest trip to Eau Claire and you read from the Little House books.

Remember when we went to Cabelas and you and dad bought us the bow with the nerf balls; you read The Last of the Mohicans to us.

Remember when you read Indian in the Cupboard and then Uncle Nate brought the movie to us to watch.

When good books and memories are tied together they will last a lifetime. I am so happy my children will have the memories of "good books".

  1. I love this. It has motivated me to read aloud more often. Right now we are trying to finish up The Wheel on the School. Thanks for the nudge in the right direction.


I love chatting with my readers. So go ahead and comment to start the conversation.
