Day 63 of 100 Days of Blogging

So, Damaris is participating in a summer reading program that officially started yesterday. She has to read at least one book from six different categories (faith builders, adventures, mysteries, Christian biographies, classics, & fictions) and the total pages has to be 2500. That averages out to about 28 pages per day. I've been worrying about her reading recently as she seems to zoom through a book in no time flat, but I don't think she's retaining what she reads. So Russ & I had a talk with her last night and she is going to read all 2500 pages this summer out loud (either to herself or to Russ & I). We got some confirmation of our suspicions when she couldn't pronounce a few of the words and thus didn't know what they meant. She's reading a three different books right now -
for Faith Builders ~ No Boys Allowed - Devotions for Girls (there are 90 total devotions, so she'll read one of these daily through the summer)
for Adventures ~ Stranger in the Chat Room
for Fiction ~ Mandie & the Mysterious Fisherman (she reads a chapter daily out of the Mandie books - there are 40 total - for school and then writes a summary of the chapter and blogs it at her blog)

So that's our big summer plans. What do yall have going this summer?


  1. Sounds fun! I'm blogging about our summer plans sometime today too. :)

    If Damaris is interested, Barnes & Noble has a summer reading deal going right now.

  2. I used to read Mandie books when I was little; I think I still have a lot of them at my mom's house--what a small world; that was 20 years ago!

  3. So I think I will read some of Damaris' books; they sound interesting! ;)

    I plan to blog, do summer one online, work, and hang with family and friends! We have a busy weekend coming up with family and friends-graduation and wedding. It shall be interesting for sure!

  4. I have not much planned for summer besides work though I am going to MI for a week or so with some of my family and spending time with my Aunt and Uncle that live there and to see their house that they built last year.

    Also spending some of my weekends off work up at Bret's cabin when I have time. Those lok like great books for Damaris to read. Take care. Blessings.
