After all the gifting and visiting and feasting of Christmas Day, C began to read The Battle of The Labyrinth (which she insists on pronouncing LAY-bee-rinth).
Boxing Day was spent reading.
Well, HER day was spent reading.
M and I were preparing dinner and the house for my family who came for dinner and overnight.
On the 27th, she moved on to The Last Olympian.
In the car on the way to St. Catherines on the 30th, she read Just Grace Walks the Dog and 10 Best greek Legends Ever.
Somewhere in between we read Star Girl together, until she lost interest and I finished it by myself.
I’ve also read Holes and Rules.
I am looking forward to starting the Madeleine L’Engle series together.
Right now however, C is already re-reading her new Percy Jackson’s (after re-reading books 1-3) and is naming all her new stuffies after Greek Gods!! We have Artemis the Elephant, Aphrodite the Kitten and Zeus, the Hedgehog!
