kids caught in the act of reading, graphic novel and boys

Hello Pragmatic Mom,

It’s Larissa from Papa is a Preacher .. I finally took a photo of my little nerd reading, I didn’t want him to catch it so it’d be staged or what not.We were at the library and he was reading a comic book. I’m not sure of the exact title of this book, and he didn’t even check it out, but he really enjoys the Hardy Boys and the Peanuts comic collections. (:
Thank you for being amazing.

  2. That teddy bear pick is adorable! This is one thing I’m going to do more of this school year, walking around taking pics of kids and students reading!
