Carter reading. It is so much fun to listen to Carter read. He will sit in his room and read out loud or we will sit together on the couch while he reads to me. I absolutely love his confidence and his joy for reading. He will occasionally ask to read to me but if I asked him to read to me, he didn't want to. I decided to make him a reading list so he'd be more motivated to read to me. His first list he got to pick out a Lego Ninjago after reading 10 books in English and 10 books in Spanish. Now he's working on his 2nd list where he'll need to read 15 books in each language and he's almost done!
Having time to downsize and organize. This summer I got an itch to go through and reorganize the kids' toy area in the living room. We got rid of the train table and got an organizer with cubbies to put their toys in. While I was working on that I moved things around in Carter's room and ended up totally reorganizing his room. The next week it was on to the drawers under Ty and my bed and our dressers. Then the following day I worked in Elise's room. It makes such a difference having everything organized and easy to find. The kids play with their toys so much more now that they are in bins than they did when they tended to just throw everything onto the train table without putting it in the bin it belonged in. When organizing our room I came across a bunch of my grandma's jewelry that I totally forgot I had so I've enjoyed wearing it more now.
