The newest Cool Boys Read(TM) group had its first meeting this evening, and it was quite an event! These little guys started reading and logging on Saturday, and there are some powerhouses on the team! The older boys are going to have to make sure they keep their game up, or these little ones might put them to shame!

Two members of the Originals and one Rock Star went to the meeting to help explain the Cool Boys Read(TM) program to the new members and their parents. It was a very good discussion, and all the boys had fun playing together before AND after the meeting. They also enjoyed the treats that were provided by awesome Group Leader Iris Walls. The brownies were ridiculously good, and I heard the cake was too. Yum!!!!!

The boys also decided on a name for their team: Letter Rip!

Yeah, boys, let's go!!!!!

Originals' Kick-off Meeting

The Originals had a great first meeting tonight. It was funny because the boys kept making suggestions about things we could do . . . and most of their suggestions were already in the plans. It was great that we were all on the same page!

Believe me, this group has a lot on its plate, but some members still want more. Hey guys, let's get started first! Then we'll see if you really need more. LOL!

I can't wait to see what these guys accomplish. They're well seasoned in the reading program, but they have some new challenges this year. It should all be very interesting.

Rock Stars' Kick-off Meeting

The Rock Stars had their kick-off meeting this evening and it was a great success. After hearing about the plans for this year, the boys were excited. They wanted the reading contests to start immediately. Don't worry, Rock Stars, Saturday will be here before you know it. But until then, keep reading!

After the meeting, the boys ran around and played. Parents were excited that their kids were engaging in some old-school fun, playing tag and duck-duck-goose!

We parents finally rounded up the kids and were ready to go, but the boys were eager to start making book selections. Those of us who had the time went into the library and let the boys choose some books. We were tired, but those boys were determined to get started.

It looks like it's going to be a great summer for the Rock Stars!

Special thanks to Khari who helped facilitate the meeting and provided structure and supervision during playtime.
