It’s Monday and it’s summer vacation!


It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date



Thursday was the last day of school and the Kindergarten class had a class party with performances, awards and more. My boy received a “good citizen” award. Every kid got a different award and a medal. They were all so excited. About half of the class joined us in an after-school picnic at a nearby park. I brought the 4yo along too – he’s always joined in at their Friday after-school playground play so it’s almost like he’s part of the class. He knows many of the kids already!

I’ve signed up the 6yo for some summer camps in the area (mostly sports related), and the 4yo’s preschool is a year-round one so phew! one less thing to worry about for now.

A proud moment for me – the 6yo sat down and read most of this chapter book on his own accord! 

On Saturday we went out for an early Father’s Day lunch at Black Angus. And with Sunday being so hot, there’s nothing much to do except stay home and build Lego!












Bones Season 5







Well this week is all about lunch – I have to pack lunches every day for the 6yo while he’s off for his sports camp! Luckily he’s happy to eat sandwiches (quite a few of his friends aren’t bread eaters!).

Maybe I’ll try my hand at onigirazu (sushi sandwiches)

  1. How was The Dew Breaker? I meant to read it a couple of weeks ago but ended up returning it to the library (because there were newer loans vying for those slots on my card). It sounded pretty sombre but, then, so were the other reads I brought home instead!
