The words "Back to School" are very different for me now that I am retired!
I am NOT trying to get a thousand projects done before school starts!
I am NOT going to meetings that seem to steal precious minutes from the last precious days!
If I used to feel the pressure of "Back To School"....
Can you just imagine how kids feel?
Here is a bit of advice for you parents out there!
Give your kids a bit of space to enjoy their last precious days!
Instead of asking them to do their Summer Reading.....Read TO THEM!
A collection of great picture books is an important "furnishing" for any house!
It is filled with lots of great books......almost ALL from Good Will.
I never, never, ever go to Good Will without checking out the children's book aisle.
These classics are in super nice condition and cost less than three dollars each.
I stick to buying the picture book read-a-louds.
BUT.....there are always lots of the series books that kids love
AND...lots of non-fiction titles about any number of things!
Wouldn't it be fun to take your kiddos on a "field trip" to Good Will...JUST for books?
For less than $10...you could all find some books that will fill those last precious days with relaxation. So take my advice...for what it is worth....and DROP EVERYTHING and READ!
Here are a few other posts about the importance of reading!
