Summertime Book Swap

I am so excited, because between the last year of my husbands med-school crazy schedule and adding a new baby to our family I wasn't able to participate or hold any swaps, but not that we've settled I am ready to roll!

The Summertime Book Swap!
Who: anyone - blogger or non blogger

What: book swap, new, used, magazine, fiction or non, anything goes! I'm going to make things interesting and say there is a price limit of $15, that way if you find something you really love for $14.95 it can go, but no one goes overboard. Find a used bookstore, I can't wait to visit mine again!

When: Sign up now until July 31

How: Email me: wadeanddebbi (at) gmail (dot) com. Include your mailing address and just for fun little bit about your self

August 1st, I will send you an email you the contact information of the person you will send your swap loot too!

A big THANK YOU to my friend Kristen, who is fantastic and made my blog look cute! I love it, she is so creative! I believe her blog is private, but if you want to leave her a comment, I'm sure she will appreciate it!

Story Time Monday

At our house we love story time - whether it be at the library, bedtime, random times on the couch or on our bellies on the living room floor. Each Monday morning I am going to be posting a special Story Time Monday book that we enjoy. I might post ideas or activities that we have used while reading this book, funny stories about reading it or just a family favorite that we can't get enough of.

I hope you enjoy.

Story Time Monday

I'm Not Cute
Jonathan Allen

Baby owl is convinced that he is not cute and that he is not small. He is a huge and scary hunting machine. How much cuter can a book for little toddlers get?

My two year old and I love to cuddle up and read this book together. We like to pretend that we have huge and silent hunting wings. We like to use our hands and make great big see in the dark eyes. And at the end I like to give him a great big hug and pose the question, is he cute, or not cute? He always replies, "No mama, I'm Noah."
