Favorite Book Friday


One of our favorite books of the summer.  My oldest just liked the cover and pulled it off the shelf at the library.

Bartholomew Biddle and the Very Big Wind, by Gary Ross is a rhyming adventure that is not for toddlers.

It took us two nights to read it, but if you had a lazy afternoon, a blanket, and some shade you could do it in one sitting.

We didn’t want to put it down.  So fun.

The pictures, by Matthew Myers are detailed and colorful.

The story and illustrations would have had me hooked, but the message is awesome too.

Check it out and let me know what you think.  Any other books similar to this one?  We would love to read those as well.

Happy reading and happy Friday!


Bunking in…

slide bunk

With three boys all sleeping in the same room, their choice, I’ve been contemplating bunk beds to free up some floor space.

It’s nice to see this bed in front of a window.  That would have to happen in our room.

I slept in a bunk bed in the sorority house in college.  Bottom bed.  I liked it better than sleeping on the single bed in the same room.  Every sister who passed through left some thoughts on the ceiling of the lower bunk.  Mostly things like, Angela loves David, Jenni and Lisa big and little forever…

And finally, this is really cool but I think it might be scary for sleeping!

It’s a gorgeous day here!  I’m off for a walk to enjoy the temps before the days get hot!

Happy bunking and enjoy the week.



Horray for Strawberry Season!


The berries are ready and they are gorgeous!


We had a glorious day to pick.  A bunch.  Of strawberries.


I can’t think of a better way to spend an afternoon.


It doesn’t take long to get your bucket full.


And then end the picking with ice cream!

I’m so glad it’s spring.  It feels so good to have the sun warm you head and shoulders.

Happy, happy spring everyone!


Green on my mind…

Must be all the green that has finally taken hold of the landscape around here.

I can’t seem to get enough of the freshness of a simple green.
