    Molly signed up for the reading program at the bookstore. Forget the library, the bookstore gives you a $5 gift card for every 20 books!! (sarcasm..) I am having a hard time getting her nose out of a darn book!! She read all 3 Hunger Games books in about a week.
    I know~tough problem to have but geesh!

    You know, I didn't even think to check Barnes & Noble. TD has a deal where they'll give kids $10 to open a bank account if they read 10 books and DD10's reading books for the library program that give prizes for reading as well. Off to check B&N. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Let me know what you find out about B&N. We did Schulers which is a much smaller chain.

    Ugh. Another round of swim lessons start tomorrow. At least it's just two of the kids.

    I've had to limit my eldest's video game time to 1 hour a day. I wonder what he'll be doing with the rest of his time.

    By the way, it's National Ice Cream Day. Here's some recipes. Maybe I'll try one of these. Crafty AND cool!

    Thanks for the ice cream recipes Brandie! i tried last summer and it didn't work. I'd like to try it again with a different recipe.
