Weekend Trip

My Mommie's birthday was this weekend and we took a nice trip to the mountains to celebrate.  The air was clean and crisp and the leaves had just a tinge of color.  It was so nice! 

When you look across the tops of the mountains you can see for miles and miles!  Now I know why the song says "purple mountain majesties".

Message From Alvie, Himself

Hi There!  It's me, Alvie!  My Mommie has been posting blogs lately, but sometimes I do it myself.

It has been raining all weekend and I had to stay indoors.  Of course, I usually stay indoors anyway unless my Mommie and Daddy take me somewhere.  Anyway, we had a good time watching TV - mostly college football on Saturday, cooking yummy dinners, and playing with the computer.

Sometimes it can be boring staying inside all day, but we always find fun things to do at my house.  Jut use your imagination and make up a game if you can't find anything else to do.  Well, gotta go now - Mommie wants to exercise.

I hope you will come back to my blog often!

Why Reading is Important

Reading unlocks the keys to all other learning, and learning to read begins at home.

When you share a book with a child, you open worlds, help them in their journey toward lifelong success, and create great memories.  I know this from personal experience.  Some of my fondest memories are of sitting quietly with my Mom or Dad and listening to them read to me.

That sparked a love of reading that continues to this day.

Parenting Resources

I've added some links to the Alvie The Little Brown Burro website that are great parenting resources!  There are articles on how to teach your children to read and other important tips for parents.
