We finished Out of Many Waters. This was so fabulous. The discussions about accepting others who are different than we are, or about what real Christian behavior does look like. Wow.
We started reading Madeleine Takes Command by Ethel Brill but didn't get very far. The greatest part of this title is that my kids had ancestors living vaguely around here at this time. It makes the whole thing come far more alive for them.
We've been reading Dragons: Legends & Lore of Dinosaurs. Everyone is loving this one. We should finish it up and be able to review it soon. Maybe early next week for the review. Gorgeous illustrations.
We started Pirates of Pompeii by Caroline Lawrence. Not far enough into it to really say much though.
I read to just Trina, a couple different picture books.
Mmm, we've also been reading The Tarantula Scientist. <shudder> Actually, it is pretty interesting. I'd prefer fewer photos, but the kids love it.
William has been reading Attack at the Arena out loud to me. Does that count? I guess, I make the rules for what I want to accomplish, so why not? I think we'll finish this book (#2 in a series) just about in time for book #1 to arrive (it's supposed to be here Monday!)
How about you? What are your goals, and how have you been doing? Why is this important to you?
