Scholastic is holding a contest for the school whose students can read the most books this summer. It is not only for the students, parents and teachers are involved to!

Students: Over the summer kids can make an account on the scholastic website and record the minutes they read! They also create a team for their school so that other students can join. They also can play games based on there favorite books.

Teachers: For teachers the website has ways to fit the read for the world record into their lesson plan.  Also there is a check list for grade up to 9th that kids can check what books they read.

Parents: For the parents of kids who don’t want to read there is a list of books that are perfect for your child’s needs.

Forza Motorsport 3

I think the game Forza Motorsport 3 is the BEST game rated E (everyone) video game ever because it has both racing, and flying of 2009.  It also has some cool features like being able to use up to Online Multiplayer 2-8, Content Downloads, Leader Boards, and has Voice.   You can also buy some FANCY Sports Cars and Muscle Cars like the Audi R8 V10, Dodge Challenger, Nissan 370Z, Ferrari FXX, Peugeot 908, and Lamborghinis, Dodge Vipers, and Corvettes.  In Forza Motorsport 3, you can live the most   realistic racing experience available (XBOX 360) as you take the wheel of more than 400 of the most beloved cars on over 100 real world tracks, courses, and exotic road courses from around the globe.  I think Forza Motorsport 3 is the BEST rated E for everyone racing game I have ever played.  This game is the continuation of Forza Motorsport 2.  There is a Forza Motorsport Series.  You can play Forza Motorsport Series On the XBOX 360, PS3, WII, and PSP.

Live Bird Feeder

There is a wonderful bird cam on sports mans paradise and it is our Ms Ziger favorite. there is many beautiful birds that eat out of bird feeders there are 4 bird feeders and 1 bird bath. This web cam is located in Kansas the birds come in many sizes. Also in the morning this camera if literary filled with birds in vibrant colors. But a crow comes in every now and then it and scares the birds away and reeks up the rewards by gobbling up the seeds for a few short seconds. Also the sounds are amazing it sounds like a harmony of birds. But if you go on at a later time it will  be a disappointment there are barley any birds at noon. I give this cam 5 out of 5 and you can comment to when you get to this web cams link. So if you want to see beautiful birds then you should go to this link.
