The latest – bullet points edition:
~ We finished our school year – Woo Hoo!
~ We celebrated Noah’s 16th birthday this afternoon. His birthday is Thursday, but we’ll be at camp, so we celebrated early.
~ Camp starts Monday – thus the wee blogging break. (If you missed last Sunday’s post and don’t know what I’m talking about, you can read up here.) I haven’t had any time to write posts to publish while I’m gone, so the blog will be silent. I don’t even know if I’ll have time to read this week – although I know I’ll at least get audio time as I drive back and forth, since I’m not sleeping over at camp. I’m hoping I’ll find time to write a Sunday Salon post next Sunday so I can tell you all how it went.
Reading: A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving (I had no idea this was going to be so funny!); The Catch by Taylor Stevens (this latest installment in the Vanessa Michael Munrose series got off to a bit of a slow start for me, but now I’m hooked); and Dreaming for Freud by Sheila Kohler (just started this one)
Just finished reading: The Three by Sarah Lotz
Watching: We watched Crimson Tide last week, which everyone enjoyed, but we won’t be having movie night tonight. Dad and Natalie have to be at camp this evening, so we’ll wait until next week to watch Josiah’s pick, The Lego Movie. Some of our favorite summer series are coming back, too: Major Crimes, Rizzoli and Isles, Perception, Falling Skies. Plus, I’m excited to try two new sci fi series: The Last Ship and Extant.
I hope you are all enjoying your summer! If you’re the praying type, I would appreciate prayers for camp this week – and especially for good weather.
