At the beginning of the summer we made a bucket list like we usually do- Izzie helped me write it on the chalkboard near our dinner table. It had things like grow strawberries, visit the library, test out the trampoline park, swim lessons etc. You get it. We put on there “Read 50 Books” for Isabelle, mostly to make sure we as parents didn’t slack on the whole educational part of summer. Is that a thing? According to my mom, that’s a thing. We had like, summer school books with motivation to complete every page. Anyway, Isabelle blurted out “How about a HUNDRED books!” So we crossed out 50, made it a hundred, and I thought meh- we will see how far she gets in eight weeks.
With two weeks to spare, Isabelle stamped off her 100th book on her chart. I mean I hate to brag but I’m pretty sure she is the greatest kid ever and I was really proud of her for getting through a hundred different books in a short amount of time! We read a lot of our books and checked out 10-15 every week from the library, new ones are always more fun to read.
I promised her that if she read all 100 books, she could take a special friend to the movies. Her best friend James from her TK class moved at the end of summer so she was REALLY HUSTLING to make sure she could take him before she left. We also invited James’ sister and Madilyn to come with us. Made it a party.

Her hard earned day full just in the middle of our rough week, so Jazz took the day off to be the chaperone when I couldn’t be there. Five kids to the movies and a swim party? Well done, Jazz. I’m really sad this family moved though, we really like them.
