I started a new thing this winter. I read to the younger 3 boys on my bed. before they go to bed. we are reading Harry Potter! it's a way for me to connect with them in a quiet, sweet way. we have lots of connection - but it's usually not quiet or sweet ;-) they love it. and we made it through the first book and watched the first movie over Christmas break. now we're on the second one! we ALL look forward to those few minutes at the end of the day.
