The girls are already asking when we can go again. I told them that next time, I want to go to Universal Studios so we can go to Harry Potter World, but we shouldn’t do that until Leah had read at least the first couple of books. So, as soon as she does that, we’ll start planning a trip. Maybe it’ll give her some motivation to work on her reading skills in the mean time.
