Last day of Summer Vacation

It is the last day of summer vacation for the children.  They start school tomorrow, except for the youngest.  When school was ending last spring, I wanted to make it our family goal to read the entire Book of Mormon before school started again.  This meant reading morning and night about 4 to 6 pages per day in order to accomplish this goal.  Well by the end of summer we were reading 10 pages a day and today we read 30 pages.  But we did it and it was amazing.  I hope to make it our goal for next summer as well and make this a family tradition.  For the school year we will be picking some subjects each week and reading a few scriptures about that subject every night before bed.  We sent the kids off to bed early with a father's blessing and family prayer in preparation for another year of school.  Hope all goes well tomorrow.
