It has been a BUSY week. Kids are taking turns being sick, and we were without water at the end of last week. I'm stressed. I'm exhausted. But we did still manage to do some reading.
We read a couple more chapters of One Foot Ashore this week. The kids keep begging for one more chapter, but this week has been crazy.
We abandoned Anna and the King of Siam. I realized that what
Connor was supposed to be reading for school was Anna and the King,
which is about half the length... same author and all. Anyway, the
descriptions in the "adult" book are long and, well, boring. The
library doesn't have Anna and the King and I decided I just don't care
enough to buy it right now. So (dare I confess this on a read-aloud
post) we watched the Jodie Foster movie....
We read Darien's Rise, which is the fist book in the Adventures in Odyssey Passages series. The kids want more... I think we can probably do that. Summer is a time for books like this...
Connor and I listened to Nory Ryan's Song. Oh, wow. This was one we planned to do on vacation while driving to South Dakota, but it didn't happen. Instead, we listened while chasing around last weekend. I thought I was going to end up needing to pull over so I could sob...
Plans for this coming week? I don't know. William will be at scout camp, so I'm hoping to finish One Foot Ashore before he leaves.
