Reading Aloud Challenge: December 15

It's time for another Reading Aloud Challenge... and I just keep thinking this post ought to be incredibly easy to write.  Just copy and paste last week.

Instead, I'll just list quickly...

Connor & I read a couple chapters of Peace Child.  So we are down to something like four chapters.  We love it, I don't know why we can't get through it.  Well, partially because even though it isn't nearly as gruesome past the first few chapters, I still don't want to read about cannibalism to this extent in front of Richard and Trina.

William & Thomas -- yeah.  We didn't even read a single chapter of God King.

Richard & Trina -- okay, so I managed another chapter of Mountain Born.  One.

Our one semi-success?   Unveiling the Kings of Israel.  I may get this reviewed tomorrow.  I hope so.  The book is fabulous.

Our Christmas read-aloud, The Story of the Other Wise Man by Henry Van Dyke.  Never even opened it.

In more positive news, William started reading a King Arthur book aloud to Richard and Trina.  And he's reading a chapter a day aloud to me from the Bible. 

Plans for this coming week? You know the drill.  Finish some of what I just listed.  Finish at least ONE of what I just listed.  <sigh>  Since I failed at that last week.

How did your week go?  Hopefully better than mine... or hopefully you have some good excuses for why it was slim pickin's.  I don't. 

To see my first post when this turned into a linky thing, check here.

We didn't do much at all. My husband actually read a Christmas story to the little boys last night which was a treat for them!
