It makes me heart smile to listen to Ben read a book, even if it is bittersweet that he is often the one now to read the bedtime story. I love it that Alex has to imitate Ben and 'read' a book too. It is not uncommon to find them up in the top bunk together with a pile of books between them. My hope is that they will continue to foster their love of reading as they grow up, for there is no greater adventure for our imaginations.
