They do like to read. Especially Bekah- her lips move when she reads- so cute. Abe is a big fan of Richard Scarry- some of my kids liked him and others...eh, they just didn't get it. Abe definitely gets it. John likes good adventure. And Eva likes something scary. My Mom recently cleaned out her basement- with my sister's help. Yes, she has always been the good daughter. giggle. I do OK. Anyway, Mom sent me several boxes full of books from when I was a kid. A looooooong time ago. Bekah especially is snarfing them up- even reading old textbooks. I don't let her know that, as I figure as long as she is entertained, it's all good. Another thing about them- they are like little puppies all piled together. They like to line the love seat- not the couch- with a minkee and then use the other minkee as a blanket. All squished together. Makes me sweaty just thinking about it, but its how they like it done. And they're quiet and they're still... amazing.
