We have been keeping her busy with reading and writing letters to her friend all summer. If she does 40 journal entries over the summer she gets a ticket to a back to school ice cream party at her school. She is not happy about all the writing but being left out of a ice cream party is just too much to bear so she is plugging away at it. She has 20 entries so far. She just finished the Barnes and Nobles summer reading program where if you read 8 books you get to pick a free book. She enjoyed that.
