    Books read 2/26

    Books read – 6 Pages read – 2188 I wasn’t sure that I was going to like The Bear and the Nightingale when I began reading it, I almost put it down for the book I started reading today, but I decided to stick with it for awhile and I’m so glad that I did. I really ended up loving the book, so much so that I recommended it to friends which isn’t something I would normally do.

    Books I’ve Read This Year 2/18

    Books read – 5 Pages Read – 1876 It was sad to watch Stargirl’s spirit get crushed unintentionally by the one who seemed to love her differentness so much.

Books read so far – 4 Pages read so far – 1689

But the opinion in this house is that they’re awesome. This was Emerson’s 4th year to go and Ellasyn’s 1st. Ellasyn began preparing for her first ddd the day after last years ended. Throughout the year she has put on dresses and told me this was the one, her dress for the ddd. Emerson has a group of friends that she and Craig attend with every year. And since the dance was on a Saturday this year we decided to get the girls…
