This weekend we took the boys to the Griffith Park pony rides and man those are some sad ponies. Manny started screaming as soon as he got on the horse, but calmed down very shortly after. Poor kid does not like quick transitions.

Read to the boys every day. 

Oh Say Can You Say Dinosaur?, Moonpowder – this has such great illustrations and is a really sweet story, Sheep is Scared, and guys, Moses has these little news print books with all of the sight words he’s learning and he is so excited that he can read them! (I am too, I can’t wait to have him read the story at night.)

Read 25 books (33/25) (not related to above)

I finished What Happened, with some tears, and I finished Authority, book two of the Southern Reach trilogy which really picked up speed at the end but was also not that great. I have Acceptance, the final book, waiting for me at the library. And I started Go Tell it on the Mountain.
