Adventures in Reading: Count My Blessings

I am thankful that this girl is learning new things every day! 
Here's a little video of her newest skill:

(Walking...and showing off some pretty rad dance moves!)

There are so many things that I want to teach Rebekah. 
Skills like how to swim and how to read. 
Habits like saying 'please and thank you' and putting things away where they belong.
Life lessons like life isn't always fair, but God is always good. 
And how to be thankful for all of the blessings God has given her. 

Some of the above lessons will have to wait until she is a little older!
But some of them I can start teaching her now...
Like how to swim! I was so thankful for each time we were able to visit our public pool this summer and practice our swimming skills. 

Every night we pray with Rebekah and thank God for the food He provided for us, for the  beautiful day He gave us, and for our friends and family who love us. These 3 things are all included in our newest fit-together shape book book from Tommy Nelson called Count My Blessings 1-2-3. Being thankful for the blessings we have is a something I can teach and demonstrate to Rebekah right now!

Rebekah just loves the pictures in this book and I appreciate the reminder to be thanking God for our many blessings. Like all of the Tommy Nelson books we have, this one is very sturdy and stands up to the 'reading' of a 1 year old. Every other page has a 3 dimensional aspect to the illustration and Rebekah really enjoys touching the pages as I read to her.

 I am also thankful that Tommy Nelson Publishing is going to give one of you a free copy of this wonderful book! There are 3 different ways you can enter (and if you do all 3 you will have your name in the drawing 3 times!)
