Summer is fast upon us and one thing I want to work on during the break from school is the kids reading.  They both love the routine we have gotten into of us reading to them each night, but I also want to help encourage their own reading progress.  I have ordered some beginning levelled readers for my daughter and a few new chapter books that I thought would interest my son, then came up with a fun reward system that has them excited to read daily.

Friday Favorites Title

It is September so that means all things pumpkin spice are hitting the shelves!  I do enjoy pumpkin spice, but I think the craze has gotten slightly out of hand.  I normally try to glaze over the various new limited edition pumpkin spice flavored items, but when I spotted this in the liquor store flyer I was willing to make an exception:
