homeschoolers just wanna have more books

Yesterday was one of those days- I knew that we needed to get out of the house....even though everyone has had colds and allergies. We went to our used bookstore and everyone got to pick out a book.......

I had to take a photo of my boy walking in the park with his nose in a book :)


My book choice?! The South Beach Diet! Good reading, there. It is very similar to the 17 day diet...maybe I will switch over just to have some cheeeeeeeeese!!! (and I thought the picture was a perfect portrayal of my life right now...the diet book and the remains of a Hershey bar............................)

I have almost the exact same picture fof my twin daughters walking to school their noses in books. It always takes SO much longer to get to school when they do this but I encourage it- they LOVE reading:)

Have you ever read The North Beach Diet? It isn't really a REAL diet, but it's a spoof off the South Beach diet. It's soooooo funny. I laughed until I cried. You must try to get ahold of it.

You are too cute!! That would be something I would do- find whatever diet would let me eat what I wanted at the moment! :)...my grandmother always said the real "trick" to maintaining a healthy weight is "everything in moderation"- and she was never larger than a size 6!- I think she was on to something!- I just don't seem to moderate chocolate too well! :)
Blessings!

I wish my kids would put their noses in books like that. Check out this facebook page...http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#!/pages/Simply-For-Life/309097979585. It's a lifestyle that I've been following since 2006...and when you're being good...you feel fantastic!!

Mom and I are always talking about writing/illustrating a book about a kid with his/her nose in a book. "...And Don't Take a Book With You!" or maybe "Adventures of a Book Worm". I would love to see more reading pics!

I cannot live without cheese. I did the Daniel Fast and missed it terribly. Then the 7th day hit and I decided to focus on what was fasting for in the first place.

I need to get back on The Beach. The first time we did it my husband and I both lost 10 lbs in the first two weeks and I lost 20 pounds over a two month period. The first two weeks are rough, but once you can add in fruit and whole grain carbs, it's much easier. And cheese sticks were a staple! :)
