Las Vegas Kids Marathon
Joey had the brilliant idea to have reading charts for Luke and Isabel where the more pages they read the closer they get to the finish line. At the end they get to pick a restaurant for our family to go out to. I am not very crafty, so this is the best I came up with.
Yes, I named their charts, "Rainbow of Reading." Sorry LeVar Burton, I totally ripped off the name of your PBS show. Luke needs to read 10,000 pages and Isabel 1,000. Her pages include me reading to her.
A friend told me about this Las Vegas Kids Marathon. Running is probably the perfect sport for Luke (no contact) and Isabel will probably like it because she enjoyed watching the women's marathon on TV from the Olympics this year. Twice a week they get together at the local elementary school with other kids, and a couple of teachers get them running (I assume.) Then once a week they are supposed to do it at home and after 10 weeks they will have acrrued 26 miles. Today at 3:45 is their first class? session? I think Luke and Isabel will gain a sense of accomplishment from this and have a lot of fun being with other kids.
