the book

nothing like a good book under the tree in the front yard when the weather is perfect!
i am continuously amazed at how jada learns...there's this switch that just flips on some days and she "gets" new stuff. she is finally able to sit and really look at a book...by herself!
and she's sooooo stinking cute! and you can even tell, she's absolutely loving it!

and being a big sister means being a role model too...guess what sofia did as soon as jada put down the book??
my dad used to say when i was younger that i {meaning me or you, for that matter} might be the bible some people would ever read...so be careful what you say and do and how you act.

you and me, we are an open book, an example...big sister or not!

i see that in my kids these days...and i still see it in me. so i guess i'm hoping my open book is a good read. do i always make good choices that lead to good examples...nope. i'm working on that every day. i just hope that i show and give enough love to make a difference...to be a good book...and to show THE good book to others, even when they don't know it.

have a safe and happy weekend!!

x for shairng this post--i'm a elementary school librarian and it just does my heart good to see lil' ones picking up and book and reading--yes, i said reading--dont think just because they open a book to look at pictures--lil' ones are actually poutting stories together visually--they create thier own adventures--oh lawddy, i can go on and on about reading---i love it--like milk, IT DOES THE BODY GOOD--and keeps you brain cells motivated and moving---have a great weekend--love you all---remain blessed and trust in HIM!

When you think of your life being an open book...puts things into a whole new perspective. I sure hope that it is something people want to read.

I don't think any of us are getting it right all the time, but I'm loving your story so far! :) I really wish we were neighbors so my girly-pie could come over and read and we could have a java! :)

Wow - that is a good way of putting things isn't it? I just had this conversation yesterday - leading by example. It's a good conversation to have and a thought that can really out you in check.

I'll have some PCAH posts to you early next week! {{HUGS}}
