One of Norah's best friend's had her birthday party at Chuck e Cheese's last weekend. Even though we live nearby, we had never been, so Norah had a great time. She said, "This day and the day we went to Dutch Wonderland are the two best days of my life."
"...the child should have a set time everyday to read for fun. Begin with half an hour for first graders, and build up to an hour of reading time daily... This is an important part of the child's education: it improves his reading skills, teaches him the habit of sitting still with a book, and reminds him that reading is fun... free reading ought to be spent on literature at or slightly below the child's present reading level so that he can simply enjoy himself. The easier reading will help him increase his speed." The Well Trained Mind: The Guide to Classical Education at Home by Jessie Wise and Susan Wise Bauer
