Mickey finished reading his first chapter book today, The Next-Door Dogs. Two (more) snow days gave him plenty of time to finish all 103 pages! I think this book came from my sister Kelly's childhood library, but Mickey seemed to enjoy it. He has now ventured on the Robinson Crusoe which I think he will really enjoy.
This is his "I love to read" face
Other accomplishments of the day included the boys spending a whole hour outside working on a snowlady (pictures to come later) and another frank discussion about the proper use of the toilet (please Lord, help this one to sink in b/c I am SOOOO tired of cleaning up messes).
