Good morning all! A day late but… I hope everyone had a very Happy Easter!
This year I lost my daughter to the Easter Bunny tradition. Although it was sad I was happy she could help mom and dad, and shop for goodies for her little brother and baby sister. Of course, she got to pick out her own basket goodies as well, which worked out well in her favor. I always add toothbrushes and toothpaste in the kids baskets. It never hurts to remind my little ones about the importance of dental hygiene!
This year I also added books. My daughter got “Middle School: My Brother is a Big, Fat Liar” and my son got his very first Magic Tree House book, “Dinosaurs Before Dark”. Unlike his artistic sister my son is very factual. Both are very excited to start reading their books!
This week was more of a planning project week. It’s finally warming up enough where we could open the tree house back up. We still need to put down some simple wood flooring and finish the roofing. Right now it looks like the tree house will have a metal roof, which will end up being a lot nicer than the roof we have on our house!
The kids love it.
Our veggies are finally starting to sprout. We can’t wait to finally put them in the ground!
This past week I read “Anya’s Ghost”. I found out about this book from my daughter’s teacher who has a blog of her own, The Late Bloomer’s Book Blog.
This was my first time reading a graphic novel and I must say the graphics are excellent. It is a novel for young teens, especially girls. The story is quick and speaks about social anxiety, body image, friendship, and ghostbusting. The main character, Anya, smokes which I did not like at all. But, all in all, it was a a quick read and was a good graphic novel to read.
