I Didn’t See This One Coming

R1 and R2 (who shares a bedroom with R3) decided to trade rooms today. R2 wants her own room and R1 wants to share a room with R3 – so I said “go for it.”

So I guess that’s what we’ll be working on for the next week. :) R1 has a chair in his room, he usually sits there and reads before bed every night (and then crawls in bed with R3). Well, tonight R2 asked to stay up and read. We went to the library for story time and the kids all picked out books (it’s been a really long time since I’ve taken them to the library – usually I put the books on hold and Mr. Fox swings by on his way home from work). R2 chose 2 chapter books (I’m so impressed with her reading skills!) and started one in the car on the way home. By the time I went in to tell her ‘lights out’ she was on chapter FIVE!!!

I snuck in and snapped this pic – it made me a little sad. She’s growing up so quickly.
