1:00~ Reading Time!!!
It always feels so good to reach this point in the day. Ella goes down for her second nap and then the three big girls and I curl up on the couch for our reading time.
We're still working through the "Little House" series now. We read usually one, sometimes two chapters each day. The girls are to sit quietly and raise their hand only for pertinent questions. This time is wonderful for slowing down and taking a break. It also transitions us perfectly into......
1:30~ Nap time!!!
Ella sleeps in her crib, Havilah sleeps on the guest bed, Bethany sleeps in our bed and Lydia sleeps on the love seat. Often Lydia never really sleeps, but she still must lay quietly with a book for her hour. That leaves the couch open for me! Or if I'm not feeling desperate for a nap one day ( this rarely happens!), I have an hour open for reading, blogging or whatever else suits my fancy!
