I have been reading non-stop. I set up a mini-library of books we own that are on the kid's summer reading lists. I have been re-reading and reading-anew many young adult books. Jerry Spinelli has really wowed me. I just finished "Tuck Everlasting" by Natalie Babbitt and had forgotten how bittersweet the book is. I can tell you that my perspective is quite different now than when I read it before. I am anxiously awaiting the next George R.R. Martin book - July 12th. It took him five years to get this book out, it better be worth the wait!
Ned is reading the "Henry and Mudge" books, a favorite or all my kids.
Ian just read "Holes" and is carrying the book around in his head. He has now started "Peak", we had to look up pictures of dead bodies on Mt. Everest. Boys are kind of grisly. Nothing like viewing skeletons in snowsuits for an hour.
Ellen is reading "A Series of Unfortunate Event" series, she is on the fourth. She also swerved off course to read the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" books again. That has been one nice thing about my kids learning to read, I don't have to read them painful-to-me books. "Captain Underpants" really tried my patience - although Sloopy Farkelfricken is the stuff legends are made of.
Sorry to say this is still a no-quilt zone. I am hoping my annual Mid-Appalachian Quilt Symposium will get me motivated again.
