Reading to 100

I have been working really hard to read 100 books by the end of December. I am only five away from reaching the halfway point. So I am going to revise my personal goal and strive to read 75 books by the end of December. I would also like to note that most of my books are not kids books as I do not have a small child at home so I feel that I have done a fairly good job at attempting to reach my goal. I am currently working my way thouh Emma by Jain Austin. I just started chapter ten. Even if I do not reach my goal I have had the opprotunity to take many adventures that I would not have otherwise taken. Most of them set in the 1800's my favorite time pieriod. I would like to encourage each of you to make personal reading goal and see where the pages of your books take you!

New Adventures

When we moved we decieded that we would not be hooking up the TV or any of the game systems at least untill after Christmas. So far the results have been great. We spent saturday night playing jenga (actually it was a cheap knock off) but we played non the less and had a fun time doing it.

On sunday Ansir decieded to buy a new bionical. So he sat at the table for a while putting it together. Then an amazing thing happened.

Tim sat down with him and helped him put on the final touches. Oh yes we have also had a nerf dart gun war in the house as well.

Ansir has also found two friends in town that are 12 and 13 years old. They dug into the legos that Ansir has and decided to actually play and pretend. I was flabbergasted. Tears sprung to my eyes! No one has sat for several hours a day only movin thier thumbs.

And of course not to leave Rosco out. He spends his time looking out the picture window searching for rabbits. Who knew a window could be so entertaining. And yes the red bench was a special purchace just for the dog! Isn't he spoiled!

Meet Misty

Hi my name is Misty. Yesterday I was adopted by my new family! They came and picked me up after church then we went to the store to buy lots of goodies for me. I have already overtaken the nice soft bed that was at the house. I think it smells like dog though!

So far my favorite person in the house is Tim. I will follow him everywhere. I heard a rumor that he doesnt like cat's but I have spent lots of time on his lap so far! And he pets me so he must love me right?

I am playing with Ansir in this picture. He likes to watch me chase my ball around the house. He also let me sleep with him last night. I hope I wasn't to loud for him. I wanted to play but the house was asleep so I started to cry! He was so nice he woke up and gave me some pats so that I would curl up in bed again.

I am not sure about this dog. He kept jumping at me like I was some play toy. But by the end of the night I was able to lay in his bed with him and he even shared his leftover milk with me from Tim's cereal this moring. I just know that before long we will be life long friends.

WOW that was alot of excitement for one day! Now I am so very sleepy! I am glad to be in a nice warm house on this cold, cold day.
