Necessities

" 'Susan,' he said, 'are babies very expensive?' I was a bit dumbfounded, Mrs. Dr. dear, but I kept my head. 'Some folks think they are luxuries,' I said, 'but at Ingleside we think they are necessities.' " from Anne of Ingleside by L. M. Montgomery

For the past few months I have been reading the Anne of Green Gables series to A. and P. and we have made it to the last book. I love the above quote that we read tonight. Actually, I love the whole series...they rank right up there with my favorite books. I'm so glad I will have two more girls to read them to in a few years.

Oh, and just so you know, the younger boys are not being left out. J. has been reading to them while I read to the girls. They have finished The Hobbitt and are now working on The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Truly, one of the great joys of parenting is getting to share favorite books with ones children.

I think we have discussed our mutual love of Anne before, but I cannot wait to read these to Lana...

I have followed your blog for sometime after finding it on Holt's BB. I am a homeschool mom and just walked to the library today with your book list in hand. We read several books already and loved them. I also just reread your family worship post. Awesome and great ideas. I was wondering if you would mind e-mailing me. I had a couple of personal questions for you. Thanks, Kim Crawford

Yes! Yes! Yes! Don't you just LOVE reading to the kids????? Harper and Zane adored The Hobbit. Adored it.

You sound so very peaceful in this post . . . I so glad!

I'm not sure it's so much peaceful as resigned. I am getting very tired of feeling so unproductive!

I highly recommend The Ranger's Apprentice for those boys too! All the fun and excitement of Tolkien and Lewis set in 600 A.D. England...
