This past weekend was the Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon. As you may remember, I participated fully in this readathon in April. Dave and I agreed that I wouldn't devote 24 hours to reading this time, but I did encourage Sam to read along with me. Sadly, he got more reading done than I did :) He read 5 books, including an e-book. I read one. And 60 pages of another one. Ha!
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen about a hundred pictures from the readathon (sorry) but here are a few more.
Above is how Sam and I spent most of the afternoon -- reading, sharing a blanket, and eating Oreos. Below is how Dave and Rachel spent about five minutes in the afternoon. Then they went to do errands.
I read for about four hours after the kids went to bed and then I went to bed too. We also went to a fundraising dinner for Haiti with Janice and the kids, watched the (very sad) Blue Jays game at their house, went to the police station to get criminal record checks for church (seriously!), and had a date on Sunday afternoon. We were super-exciting and spent time working on our New Zealand photobook.
On Friday night, we also hosted all of my mom's sisters for supper. That was fun. And we took a picture. And no, my mom wasn't there.
So this weekend was a much better weekend than last weekend. And I want to say thank you for all your amazing comments. I will be trying to respond to each of you individually but it might take me some time. Work is starting to get really crazy, the Jays are fighting for a spot in the World Series, and Sam is starting to bring home homework which we need to work on with him. After all "I" and "at" are really hard words to spell :)
