'Diary of a Wimpy Kid'

Two weekends ago we took a roadtrip down to Moab, Utah.  Besides listening to some stories from 'The Raven and Selected Short Stories' audiobook by Edgar Allan Poe and 'Galileo and The Stargazers' audiobook, the boys did lots of reading while in the car and while lounging in the cabin that we stayed at in the mornings and evenings before and after exploring.

Damek spotted the latest 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' book at Costco the night before we headed out (he's read all the previous books), so then Kyan decided that he wanted to read the series from the start.  Lee & Kyan went to the library and checked out the first 2 books in the series for him to read on our trip.  It was neat to listen to the two of them having conversations about what was going on in each of the respective books that they were reading.  Kyan would also ask Damek what page he was on in his book and then tell Damek what page he was currently on.  Definitely made for some cool connecting time between the two of them.

Kyan finished the first book in the series while on our roadtrip.  When we got home he wanted to check out the second 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' movie, 'Rodrick Rules' at the library before reading the second book, which we did.  He watched the movie a couple of times, and then started on the second book, which as of now he is about 3/4 of the way through.

My kids love these books/movies too! We have so many jokes and references between us based on them....it is great to see other sibs connecting this way as well!
