Last night Nathan's school hosted a family reading night. They took all the kids into different rooms of the school and they heard stories about animals. Many of the teachers wore costumes, and they had the school all decked out! They held a short seminar for parents on helping your child to read. At the end all the kids got to choose one book to take home (along with the bag of treats and crafts from the classrooms) and then they had drawings for gift certificates at local resteraunts. Will you believe that BOTH of my kids had their number drawn???? We never win anything! They were so excited! Hopefully this is a sign that our luck is changing, because this past few years have been tough. Well, thanks for reading!

Our school did something similar last year.....expect in the form of a pajama party! They encouraged everyone - kids and parents alike - to come dressed in pj's and to bring a favorite bedtime story. Each classroom had someone reading different stories, and I heard it was excellent!! Unfortunately, the kids were sick at the time, so we couldn't go! :( We are hoping they do it again this spring.
