I LOVE to read!

For those of you who know me well, you know I'm a sucker for a good book. I love Contemporary Christian Fiction. J and A also love to read (so does Seth, but his favorite so far is his touch and feel book or his farm animal book). I decided to start reading them the Chronicles of Narnia Series a week ago. I went into thinking that it might be too much for pictures, me just reading, maybe over their head...I didn't know. I have only read "The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe", if you know about the series it starts with "The Magicians Nephew". We began reading it last week and the kids both LOVE IT! Last night we finished a chapter (which is usually when I stop) and they were so into it (even Alayna) that they asked if we could please keep reading to find out what happens next. The cutest part was that as I was sitting on J's bed reading to them, he and A were laying on his trundle next to each other curled up under her blankie looking at the ceiling listening very intently. I love this!! I have looked forward to reading long chapter books to my kids for a LONG time and I can't wait to keep reading! I'm glad my kids have my love for books!
