Silent reading (on the tramp under sun forts)

by Karmel Larson

This was the adventure a few days ago.  Every day after lunch, we do an hour of silent reading… usually on the couch.  Ben, Abby and our neighbor friend, Bradley enjoyed this outdoor silent reading treat on the tramp to make summer reading a little more exciting!  They spent much more time building their shade forts than actually reading.

Today was Ben’s first day as a Wolf in Cub Scouts.  He went to Camp Jeremiah Day camp.  Yesterday we went to the scout office to get his new shirt and book.  He read his wolf book from cover to cover with only a few breaks.  Tonight he went to bed with his Bear book (a year early…).  Do you think he’s excited or what?
