After dinner, baths, brushing teeth, reading a book, and saying prayers, it’s off to bed for the kids (usually between 7 and 7:30 at the latest — otherwise the wheels tend to come off!).

After we put Sparky to bed, we’ll often let Kate stay up a bit later to read or write or even do some homework (if not done earlier in the day– as an aside, I don’t remember doing homework in first grade, but I digress!).

As I walked by her room, I saw this image and had to capture it.  I quickly went downstairs, grabbed the camera and came back to make this image.  It took just a few moments of my time. At 7 she is a very good reader and enjoys it — which is something that Nicki and I definitely wanted to create for the kids.
