The Monday holiday kind of threw off my week! I was never really sure what day it is. One thing I do know is that it’s Five Fact Friday!
2. Bunches of books. The library’s summer reading program started up this week, which is another of our favorite summer things to do. My parents never forced reading on us that I can remember, and I’ve always been an avid reader. Instead, my parents modeled reading as one of their favorite things to do and kind of used it as a prize for us (you can stay up and read for a bit, etc.).
I have no idea what I’m doing when it comes to modeling reading for my kids or teaching them to read, but it’s such a part of my life that I get so happy when they bring over a stack of books for me to read three or four times a day. They’re not at all interested in read-aloud books, but they absolutely love picture books. There are so many good ones out there, it’s perfect for now.
3. Day in the Life. The last two Wednesdays, I’ve done a “day in the life” snap series over on Snapchat (I’m @onelovelylife) . It’s been a fun little project. I like being able to actually capture what a day in the life looks like. I don’t put *everything* in there (I don’t think Milo or Sophie would appreciate me putting potty training struggles, or every little tantrum on the internet for the world to see), but it gives me a little snapshot of what life is like now. So fun.
The weekly newsletter comes out tonight around 6pm PST. If you haven’t signed up yet, you can click here, or fill out the form in the sidebar under my profile picture. This week, I’m sharing a few fascinating books, talking about strength training, things I’m loving lately, and more!
