Summer Reading Challenge

Moo started a Lightning McQueen jigsaw this morning but she started to get into difficulties so Beanster came along to give a helping hand. They were very pleased with themselves when it was completed.

We all headed out to the Library after breakfast so Beanster could get new books to complete her Summer Reading Challenge. She chose to go wearing odd shoes.

She has now read 5 of the 6 books needed. She can’t read independently yet, but listening to lengthy stories or short novels and discussing them counts towards the challenge when you can’t yet read. Today she earned some stickers and a wristband for getting to book number 5 when she handed her record over for checking.

Moo took a seat out for herself and looked at some books.

Afterwards Beanster and Mama listened to some music being played by the Reed Band whilst Moo and I went to the local bakers to buy us all some lunch.

On the way back Moo admired some hanging decorations and had a go on the swings.

A bit of food perked the girls up enough to do some urban gymnastics.

Listening to the Reed Band and also to  Mama playing the piano inspired Beanster to play her own music in the afternoon.

In the evening the girls were full of nonsense, running around everywhere and playing all of the games. Beanster took herself back to the 80’s and wanted filmed jogging to help people to get fit.


Tomorrow we are heading out camping so the rest of the evening was spent tetris packing. It was pitch black by the time we have finished.

Wonder what wonders await us on the campsite?

  1. I love Moo’s shirt! We did a summer reading challenge too. He had to be read to for 8 hours, so we kept track of it all in 5-20 minute increments. Have fun camping!
