I stumbled across a few pictures of me reading several years ago. I started looking through some of our multiple photo libraries to find more.
Story behind this picture. I managed to read the first 12 Elsie Dinsmore books inside of two weeks when I was ten years old. I was literally reading in every single spare moment. My eyes were so sore and crossed that I couldn’t see five feet in front of my face without the world being blurry. Mom and Dad told me that I needed to go outside for awhile. So what did I do? Go outside, pull a chair onto the grass, and keep reading. Made sense to me. :)
If I’m trying to read (or if I’m reading too much and shirking from my other duties) I typically get a sick or sleepy baby thrown in my arms. (Age 10 above, age 13 below.)
Age 17. :) Reading is one of the best ways to pass time while RV traveling.
NaNoWriMo update: I’ve been able to keep up with my word count despite being extremely sick the first two days of NaNo. Finally, I’m feeling better and the words are flowing better. I didn’t realize how many words 50,000 really is. :)
