This week's prize was two monogrammed backpacks from Kids Travel Zone.
I've been trying to be consistent with the boys doing their studies everyday (Math, Reading and Writing)- before we play or get too busy with Summer Fun. It's been going good except as fate/irony would have it one of my sons doesn't want to participate in the Summer on-line book club.
My other son is just doing it to please me. (He would rather be reading Franny K Stein, but the weekly prizes are tempting him. A sponsor donated 2 cell phones as prizes!)
But isn't that how it always is... I think it ironic too... that our normal book club members aren't participating either.
I thought hosting an on-line book club would be a great compromise. We all had summer plans and company and trips so having a normal book club would be impossible to coordinate.
The main thing is -- the kids are reading, right? It doesn't matter what they read.. just that they are reading.
I just think it is so funny/ironic- I put all this time and effort into this project and my kids are stinkers.
