Finding a new love.
It was a great weekend. A balance of work and fun. Both of my kids schools had book fairs at Barnes and Noble. The really exciting thing for me, and this was my hope, was that my 7 year old would find something that sparked his interest in reading. It is so important to read. He loves to have a book read to him but has not discovered the joy of ready on his own. I am really pleased to say that as we were exiting the children's section I saw his eyes light up as he rushed over to get a closer look at a stack of books. The series is called "Diary Of A Wimpy Kid" and he is loving it. We help him with the tougher words but he is entertained and enjoying the read. He's already on page 28 and keeps saying "MOM! This is fun! I like reading!"
The glaze has been running at full speed and even with a cold I'm moving along nicely. I had hoped to be loaded and fired up by Sunday but Monday will have to do. Such is life. The newest piece will join the Love Wish hearts. It is a wood grain heart with a little knot of wood. I think Pink Ice on Tan will look great with this one! Maybe a good name would be "Love Knot". Any thoughts?
