Kaity learned how to pedal!

Kaity asked Santa for a bike, it's the only thing she would ask him for. He told her she had to wear a helmet whenever she wore a bike, so then she started asking for a helmet too.  Anyway, she got one for Christmas and has been riding it all over our kitchen/dining room.  She loves it! It took some time, but she can steer and pedal really well now.  We are just waiting for the snow to melt so we can go outside!

2012 Reading Goals

In 2010 I joined in with some friends who had set a reading goal for the year. They were going to read 10 books in 10 different genres during the year.  Sadly, I did not succeed in completing this goal, but in an attempt to read more books outside my comfort zone (and therefore find more good books), this year I am planning to try the 10 in 10 goal again.
This year's categories are:

  • books I own but haven't read yet
  • books by general authorities
  • biographies
  • young adult/middle reader fiction
  • books recommended by others
  • classics
  • books with movie adaptations
  • non-fiction
  • award winners
  • Authors I've never read
So we'll see how it goes :)
