with piano and violin for the summer. (They'll each have to play a few times a week to keep up with their Suzuki songs. When you finish a Suzuki book, you give a performance for friends and family that covers the entire book and they're both about 3/4 through).
with Harry Potter. It took us six months of reading about an hour every night to get through the thousands of pages. Lots of vocabulary building in these books with a little censorship required. We particularly liked the names of the spells - considering most of them are Latin based.
with cable TV. We've talked about getting rid of cable for some time. The only thing we ever watch is some Fox News after the children are in bed. When I'm pregnant, however, I tend to collapse on the couch the minute the children are down and remain there for a good long time. I got somewhat addicted to Jon and Kate during the last pregnancy and now with all the media frenzy surrounding them - it just doesn't feel right. So we pulled the plug entirely. (Papa, consider yourself forewarned. You may not want to visit us during a big golf event).
