A few weeks ago I urged the boys to try out reading the Hardy Boys. They are on a serious secret detective kick and I thought they would enjoy them. I have tried in the past but no one was buying what I was selling. However, this time it peaked their interest. William checked out 5 or so and was done reading them within a week. Eric is reading them aloud to both of the boys. He used to read them when he was a kid, which they think is cool. We learned that there are around 60 of them. William wants to read them all. The other day they each got a package in the mail. Grammy and Grampy had sent up a copy for each of them. They were thrilled.
Then Eric told them about the Hardy Boys TV show he added to our instant cue. It has been non-stop questions as to when can they watch. Today they viewed their first episode. They love it, and think its neat that Daddy watched them when he was a kid- even though Grammy apparently didn't like him to. Or so that's what we've been told.
I love watching them get excited about books!
