About a year back or so we decided to make our front room, that was originally used as an office, into a reading room. Laptops and iPads had taken over and the big desk was collecting dust and the room was just not getting used. So we got rid of the desk on Craig’s List and got a few chairs and a fun old record stand at a garage sale and voila, a reading room.
Today she read there. But instead of using one of the chairs, she found a big box that had held something or other for the basement. She grabbed a quilt and a pillow and got in and sat there peacefully after school. She read and I watched her. I love how the light hits her beautiful hair. I love how she has her blanket with her. I love how the simplicity of reading in a box brings her joy. I love watching her read.
