At our local library they do a summer reading scheme, at the start of the holidays the kids get a big poster with lots of spaces for stickers, for each 2 books they read they get a sticker and when the poster is full they get a certificate and medal. Camerons already read two but Caitlins going through a self conscious phase where because she can't read the books, she doesn't want us to read to her either. Today though after coming home from a bike ride Caitlins feet were filthy (Jelly shoes + mud = mess) so I put them in a basin of water to clean them. Cameron, knowing he had a captive audience he grabbed a book and started reading to her. Obviously makes a big difference if her big brother reads to her as she sat quietly next to him for 3 books. :) So cute seeing them reading together. I remember when I first fell pregnant with Caitlin how much I panicked about having two so close in age, but its really worked out great as they're such good friends.
And another photo for the summertime scavenger hunt I bought this candle yesterday while shopping with my Mum, I love candles, at christmas I buy loads of the cinnamon and apple ones, so when I saw this new one at half price I had to grab it :) Its from the new Air wick essential pearls range and is half a solid candle and half a gel candle so is pretty and smells of mulberrys so smells yummy too. :) Not that I can light it as I forgot we had no lighters or matches in the house lol
