    A milestone of sorts (related to the last post, actually) - I just went and looked over my bookshelves with DD, and we picked out a book for her to read. (Dragonsong by Anne McCaffrey.)

    Oddly enough I think the same thing very often. Then shared that with one of my Cub Scout parents and they told me a story that made them think the exact same thing! You aren't alone. It's a fun ride, huh?

    I am SO looking forward to sharing Anne McCaffrey with my kids! Love her! I think once DS is through with Rick Riordan I might be able to entice him with dragons! Don't think he's quite ready for the sexual content in the Lessa stories yet, though. lol

    Not sure if this qualifies as a brag, but I recently had the opportunity to take DS8 to an author appearance for his most recent favorite book (The False Prince by Jennifer Nielsen). He was the only person there under the age of 12 and talked very knowledgeably with her about the plot, character motivations, etc. It was so much fun to watch and Jennifer Nielsen was fantastic with him! It was a great night for DS and for me!

    DS8 won his first science fair ( he was 7 when the fair occurred).

    He built his own FM radio and explained the concept of a closed circuit and the use of frequency modulation to receive the signal from radio stations

    DS 6 has avoided taking off his training wheels for a year now and as the summer approaches he has already seen several of his friends riding their bikes around town sans training wheels. Today despite his fears, he bit the bullet and is now training wheel free! Yippee!

    Graceful,

    We went through the same thing and it was also peer pressure that helped her try. Good luck with the biking!
