Each night, a festival of reading is held in the Pol household. The highest priority on the list is the reading of bedtime stories. Regardless of what the clock says, each of our kids gets a short story or a chapter or two from longer books. My son is already showing similarities to dad. We've read about 50 short books in the past year. Most are from the Magic Treehouse series, though we've read children's versions of The Time Machine, Peter Pan, and others. We have also read My Side of the Mountain. Twice.
Just who is this Iron Pol?
A former out of shape sailor, who became a marathoner, then a triathlete, Ironman, and ultramarathoner. Now, life has pushed me into short track speed skating. More important than the titles is the lifestyle, and sharing it with others.
