We Have a Winner!

The girls have been thoroughly enjoying the Summer reading program at our library.  There are small prizes to be had for each level completed, then once all levels are complete the kids get their name in the big drawing for a special prize.
Lo and behold Tia got a post card in the mail today telling her she won the big prize!  She was super excited and we had to go right away to pick it up...no waiting until the morning for this kid.

and the winner is...

OF COURSE she chose the Barbie.  In her eyes there was no other prize.

I love that the girls are old enough now to really understand the reading program.  They check off the little boxes every time they 'read' (are read to) for 5 minutes and look forward to picking out new and exciting books every week.
Actually winning the big prize was the icing on the cake.  They're hooked on books, and I think that's awesome.

Way to go Huntley Library!

Congratulations Tia!!! The doll looks good, your smile looks even better! Miss you!

Gia, next time, it will be you! You go girl!

Oh, I should have enrolled Noah too...didn't know about this program. Noah already reads so well...in fact he reads his bedtime stories himself.
