It was a busy week for me this week. I volunteered at the Book Fair at DD’s school for three days and did a lunch cover for a 3rd Grade class Thursday. Then it was darling daughter’s musical program yesterday. She was shy telling me about it because she is not really into singing, she said. 🙂 There’s not much time for me to make an animal costume because DD said her part was a horse. I was like, uhmm…what should I do? Good thing it was optional and K just wanted to wear Sunday best.
Gladly, dear husband and my brother-in-law made it on time before the program started. We had a great time. We are so proud of our little lady bug. 🙂
It’s been a while since we gone out to the mall. My daughter thought of going to Firewheel Town Center today since it’s her Spring Break. She wanted to go to Barnes & Noble Bookstore. Besides children’s books, she also finds nice learning tools and kids’ toys there.

I was a guest reader in K’s class yesterday.
In participation with the Read Across America Campaign week, K’s school PTO asked parents if we’re able to come to the school and read to the students or listen to them read. I came to her school yesterday and read a book to two First Grader students and to K’s class.
It was a great feeling to be able to share a little time reading to the children and see them interact and share their reactions about the story I read to them.
Checking for books.
If I remember it right, this is the second time K and I visited our local library since the school started in August. We couldn’t attend the Story Time for All Ages on Tuesday evenings because our bedtime is around 7:00 P.M. and the story time is scheduled at 6:30 P.M. The story time on Wednesdays and Fridays are for toddlers and are scheduled during school hours. So obviously we’re not able to go as well.
This afternoon we got the chance to go to the library because K wanted to borrow DVDs. We have a collection of kids’ movies on DVDs at home but it gets boring, you know. She enjoys being at the library. She reads a few books. Sometimes I read to her. What fascinated her most was searching for books and DVDs at the computer kiosk. When K started to try using the computer kiosk, she used a step stool to reach the keyboard. Now, she doesn’t have to use one anymore. She can reach the computer keyboard and she’s very happy about that. This way K will know if her favorite books like Pete the Cat and Hippoposites and DVDs like Kubo and My Neighbor Totoro are IN or OUT. The library is one of the places to take your children for learning and reading. There are activities and special events for kids’ according to age and interest that local libraries organize all the time.
I need to allot more library time on the weekends. As for the story time, we will catch up on that in the summer. We always participate in the Summer Reading Club.
