This week Doggie boy and I have been reading the book Too Busy Marco by Roz Chast. We had borrowed the book from the library the week before during our fortnightly trip. At first he was reluctant to read the book as the cover page was not that appealing. However as we peeled through the pages of the book he got more and more interested in the story.
Doggie boy proudly announced that he created a masterpiece showcasing his favourite funny fishes- Cube-Headed La-Di-Dah, Peanut-Butter-And=Jelly fish and the Frosted Doughnutfish one evening after dinner. He also mentioned that it would be great if such fishes really existed at it would certainly make his day eating them.
My 5 yr old had been flipping through the book almost daily on his own and even started drawing out snippets of the story as shown above.I’m amazed at the details and clarity of his drawing of the different type of fishes that he read about in the book.
It shows that my efforts in reading often to the kids and trying to get them interested in reading different types of books have is slowly paying off.

Have anything interesting happened to you this week?
This week has brought about changes in our schedule. I’ve decided that it’s time for change. It’s time to really do something for myself. What better time then now to execute the changes. There is never a right or wrong time to start so why hesitate some more.
I’m going all out the strive for what I want and “just do it”. This week I’ve signed up for Zumba class. Come the end of July I will have one night off for myself. I’ve long wanted to attend a Zumba class as it will certainly be so much more fun then just doing Zumba on the Wii at home. I’m hoping to be able to boost my energy levels and lose the remaining 5kgs to get back to ideal weight. My weight has been stagnant for all too long and I really need some motivation to get moving.
I’ve also taken the plunge and purchased my first DSLR – a Canon EOS Rebel T4i. (Canon 650D) I have wanted to get one for a long time and now I’m a proud owner of one. It will be some time before I’ll be familiar with all the dials and functions on the camera. I can’t wait to take better shots with it and improve my photography skills.
