reading needs time

One of the great benefits of homeschooling is: TIME

Time to lay in bed all morning, afternoon and late into the night and read if that is what one is so inclined to do.

William recently read all 7 Harry Potter books. In two weeks. Some of these books are over 700 pages. He couldn't put them down.  He was just so excited.

When he finished them and realized there were movies he couldn't wait to watch.
Last weekend, Eric took Landon with him to CT for the day. William made the popcorn and then him and I snuggled to watch the first movie, all during Harkin's nap. It was fun for him to see the differences from the book to the movie.

He is hoping to see all the movies some day but for now we will just let the wonder of words keep the story alive.


  1. Love this! I can just imagine how lovely it is to watch his love of reading unfold. And how nice to have a little time together to watch the movie.

  2. Love the fact your children love to read. They can go anywhere, do anything, be anyone while enjoying the story. Wonderful accomplishment William! Love, XXXOOO

  3. Harry Potter has been a bit hit in our house this summer. Lilah read books one through 5 and is not sure if she will see the series through to completion now, or be content to put it down where she is. She is the type of reader who can have several books going at once, which I did not manage to do until I was an adult. I love talking about books with her.

    I love this picture!
