"We are going to focus on LIFE for Katya. I believe, one day, she will amaze the world."

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

Summer Reading and Watching Box?

A few years ago, we began creating a box of reading and watching materials that were themed for Winter/Christmas. That was such a hit with our family, that we added a Spring/Easter themed box the next year. That too went well, so this past fall, we added a box of fall/Thanksgiving themed materials.

Now the children are asking for a Summer/4th of July box!

I'm taking suggestions because so far my looking at the thrift store has not turned up anything. I did a quick search on Amazon the other day when I was needing to order another item and tacked on a Pete the Cat book.

Taking suggestions for any age range book from easy reader to adult and the same for videos that have a clear summer or summer holiday theme.

We love having the boxes to switch out for each season. It is "fresh" after the children have not had access to them for a year! Because the items are already in a nice box, it's fast and easy for me to grab the correct box from the shelf and set it out. The children know how to dive in and enjoy. I try to add some magazines like  Romantic Homes or Bliss Victoria that are themed to that season as well. I enjoy flipping through them myself when I don't have time or energy to read but want something to quickly do for a break.

Standing by and taking suggestions now! ;-)

:-) This past week I picked out summer themed books for exposure at the library where I work! I will check on Monday if any of them happen to be translated to/from English!
