The Little Write Gal’s Summer Reading List

Summer is half over *sigh* and school will be starting again before we know it.  To encourage kids to read, the following post was written by The Little Write Gal (soon to be 10 years old). ~ Christy

Encourage kids to watch less television, play fewer video games, and instead, read more books. I thought I would share my favorite books with you which are recommended for kids ages 5-12.

Once upon a Curse – by E.D. Baker

Diary of a Fairy Godmother – by Esme Codell

Junie B. Jones – by Barbara Park

Series of Unfortunate Events – by Lemony Snicket

Diary of a Wimpy Kid series – by Jeff Kinney

My Weird School series – by Dan Gutman

Thanks for reading my mommy’s blog! :p

First Simon now Ellen. Should American Idol call it quits?

American Idol is now down two judges after Ellen DeGeneres announced yesterday she would not be returning to the hit Fox show. “A couple months ago, I let FOX and the ‘American Idol’ producers know that this didn’t feel like the right fit for me,” Ellen said in a statement issued to Access Hollywood yesterday.  Simon Cowell, who announced last season that he was not returning, has yet to be officially replaced by Idol execs.  Online reports are buzzing this morning, however, that Jennifer Lopez will fill one of the two open judges’ seats.

Personally I think Idol should call it quits.  While no one can fill Simon’s black t-shirt, with two judges gone I think the show can no longer be what it once was.  The records hit a record low last year even with Simon still there.  I think the only thing that could rejuvenate Idol at this point is a Simon/Paula return.   

What do you think?  Are you going to still watch Idol with two new judges?

I’m a bad blogger

If you Google “Bad Blogger,” here is what comes up. LOL. What should really be shown is a picture of me.  Thanks to all of my readers who emailed me checking to see if I was ok.  The summer has been a bit crazy so far but I am back now to posting regular updates.  Thank you so much for continuing to read my blog.  That means so much to me!

I hope everyone is having a fabulous summer!
