This week was Nevada Reading week. Taz and Cynjyn each had to do a "bag a book" project. Taz chose a book he'd just finished called "The Hideout". He really loved this book and Garry helped him make his bag. It's about a boy hiding out in a cabin in the woods, so we made the bag like a cabin and the roof opened to reveal the contents in the bag.
Cynjyn did "The Spooky Old Tree" Garry helped her make her bag like an old tree and it was filled with what else but a light, a rope and a stick! Course she has to put on her scared face for the picture. What a poser!!
Wednesday was turn off the electronics and read or spend time with your family. We turned everything off and played Splat, the Cynjyn wanted to play Murder in the Dark, so we got out the candles and did that, then we played Dominoes by candlelight and then the kids played with the candles for awhile (Garry and I joined in, still kids at heart). Oh yea, we had read earlier in the evening, so we did read too. It was very fun and the kids actually enjoyed not watching TV or playing video games. The next night, Taz even gave them up again to read! He's been reading his scriptures a lot lately and spent about 40 min. just reading them and marking some of his favorite scriptures. Go Taz, love that!!
