This month I finished The Lazy Genius Way by Kendra Adachi; Falling by T.J. Newman (crazy suspenseful book, could not put it down); 14 Ways To Die by Vincent Ralph; and The Madness Of Crowds by Louise Penny, among others. I also re-read a couple of books recently – No Way To Treat A First Lady and Boomsday, both by Christopher Buckley. I often want to reread my favorite books, but I don’t think to do it; it was so nice to enjoy these two! Currently I’m reading The List Of Things That Will Not Change by Rebecca Stead – so good so far.
Currently reading to my kids:
When we read to the boys at bedtime, we usually divide and conquer. They listen to one story on the couch together – usually read by me – and then Tamara takes Jo Jo to his room to read “bed books” and I do the same with Edgar.
Jonas loves reading Curious George books currently. He and Edgar also often enjoy Cars and Trucks and Things That Go. Edgar is currently in the middle of James and the Giant Peach. We also have enjoyed the Olive and Beatrix books and the Once Upon A Fairy Tale series.
Currently listening to:
I finally finished I’m Chocolate, You’re Vanilla on audiobook! I have a bunch of other audiobooks in my Audible library. I’m hoping that the return to my commute will help me with listening to more audiobooks. Currently I’m listening to How To Be Here by Rob Bell.
Tamara and I started watching Schitt’s Creek some nights after the boys are in bed. We’re not very far into it, but I am finding it hilarious so far – hoping it is worthy of the nine million recommendations we’ve gotten from others insisting we watch this show!
Currently the boys are:
So excited about starting school! Edgar started kindergarten this month and Jonas started nature pre-school. More on that at some point.
Currently grateful for:
My new school! Loving getting to know new co-workers and students.
Currently looking forward to:
It has been so fun already – only a couple of days into the school year – hearing all about Edgar and Jonas’s adventures at school. Can’t wait to settle into our fall routine and hear more about the things they do each day.
