I guess it's a good problem to have ...

I gathered all my books on Ancient Egypt, mummies, and pyramids to start organizing for our first 3 weeks of school (using Tapestry of Grace, year 1).  I already shooed away 11 yo C from reading one of the books in my stack, and now 9 yo J is sitting there reading one of the books.   If they read it NOW, they won't want to read it in a week or two when I assign it.

But then again, I'm just thrilled anytime I see them reading something educational and not "fluff".   Actually, I'm thrilled anytime I see my 9 yo son reading something voluntarily, since he'd rather be DOING than READING any day.

Though I do think I need to find a less visible place to store the books ... for now.

Looking forward to a new school year,
April E.
