Summer is flying by in our neck of the woods.  We've been spending our time swimming, playing with friends, seeing free movies (love that program) and just enjoying the relaxation of summer time.

I'm still reading tons of books:
The Unschooling Manual by Mary Griffith (great read - I need to post some of the resource recommendations)
The Explosive Child by Ross Greene (this one was recommended on a list I'm on, not sure I agree with all of his views, but it does have some helpful advice)
Hamlet (trying to expand my horizons)
The Big Book of Children's Reading Lists:  100 Great, Ready-to-Use Book Lists (oh my gosh, this book is AWESOME, I totally want it, but am waiting until I find a great deal.)
Book Crush by Nancy Pearl (apparently I'm a little obsessed with finding interesting books for my kiddos to read - this is another great book, I picked it up at a library sale - bargain!  Great ideas for books based on interests.)

The kids and I have all been reading a ton - we're trying to win Nook e-Colors in our local library summer reading program.  Great prize, right?

Until next time!
