Tuesday is special. Tuesday is our day. Daniel and mama day. Now that Daniel is older and he goes to school it's Tuesday afternoon. We paint. We visit the science museum. We read, we dream out loud and we share wonderful conversations. I marvel at his wisdom of the way he views the world . I admire the compassion and empathy that he expresses. I treasure this time that we have. The bookstore is one of our favorite places to go to. We search for a book that will take us on a new adventure. Usually we choose a book to read together and Daniel chooses a book to read on his own. Last Tuesday when he found his desired book he rejoiced. "The lost hero" was released that day. A book written by Rick Riordan , one of his favorite authors. He began to devour the five hundred and fifty three pages of this book as we stood in line to pay for it. I smiled. I couldn't help feeling a sense of satisfaction. I love that he is as passionate about reading as I am. I love that reading takes him to different worlds of imagination and mythology.
These thoughts bring me to a quote by Dr. Seuss, "the more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." How true!
