Today's post is going to take a little different tack. I have gotten rid of what I estimate are between 75-100 things in the last few days. I decided to encourage neighborhood kids to read by offering an incentive: For every book read or read to them, a child can come to my house and score a piece of candy. Well, word got out and neighborhood kids have been visiting my home. I have been told about swans, crocodiles and penguins. Children have been bringing books over and we have been sitting on the couch, reading about hens, Hello Kitty and fashion shows. I have brought some of my children's books upstairs and those have been read too. Lots of candy has left the house and I am excited to have such eager readers in my neighborhood.
In the spirit of the original intent of the board, I did get rid of a bulky entertainment center that has been living in our basement. I tried to sell it, but nobody wanted to buy it, so I gave it away.
Destinations: Candy-tummies, Entertainment Center-a new home in a neighboring community
