signs

I so wish that I could ride my bike while carrying a camera. I saw two signs outside of buildings that had me about falling off my bike b/c of laughing. Sign #1 was "Closed for Lunch"...in the window of an Italian restaurant. Sign #2 was great because of how the people were able to laugh at themselves. It was "Church attendance...come early for a back seat."...the signboard for a Baptist church.

And then there was a sign in front of my library that is SO true. "Children learn to become readers from the laps of their parents." This is so true for my family. We all love to read (except my bro, he just "likes" it, it isn't a passion for him) because of how much books played such a large part of our growing up due to mom and dad reading to us virtually every night. That and the fact that we didn't have TV, so we had to use the TV in our heads.

Glad you had fun at the circus. Our kids love them. Perhaps we'll go when we're back in Denver.

And a good reminder about reading to them! (I did do that with my 5-yr old last night.)

I'm already reading to my little one! I'm very passionate about reading and books, so I really want to pass that on. :-)

you will. My mother (who is the reading freak that started the trend) taught me and Mel how to read, and we are crazy about it. My dad taught the other two, and they are readers, but not near as much. :)

Those are great! My eldest already has a passion for reading and I hope my other two follow suite.

guilty as charged... although I've read two books a month for a year now. :)
