Summer Reading with Riley and Company! :)

Good Morning to you!  I'm So So SOOO excited to have my first post as a DT for Riley and Company :)

Today is National Teacher Day! 
 In honor of our teachers, this week's theme at the Riley and Company blog is anything school related.  One of the things that I do with my children during the summer is keep up their reading - they have summer reading lists and they keep a reading log :) 

For my school related card, my Riley's are all a bit summery (the newbies are still en route - woohoo!) - Hammock Riley is available in the store!  I made it work for just what my kids will need - a reading log with Riley and a book mark!

Here is it, nestled together.   The card reading log, Riley Bookmark and belly band.

Since it's for the kids, that's lemonade in his glass, LOL!
