A Busy Sunday

Today was a very busy day for us. The boys got up early this morning to work in their grandparents' garden, while Big B and I did some work around the house. Then we headed out for the day.

Our first stop was Weymouth Woods for a presentation on snakes. The main theme was learning to distinguish between venomous and non-venomous snakes. We got to examine several preserved specimens and one live snake.

After Weymouth Woods, we ran errands until it was time for our next stop, a birthday party.

B and D jumping in the bounce house with a friend.

B finished up his book and is now reading this one. It is made by Dark Horse, as are the books that D has been reading, but this one is not part of that set.
D is still working on the last book of the set that he has been reading. I think that he is trying to make it last, as it is the last one in that set.

I read this book Thursday and Friday.

I am reading this book now. It and the book above are part of a series, and are the only books in this series that my local library carries.

  1. I appreciate any efforts to draw attention to reading, and attract reluctant readers to it.

    That's because I grew up as a reluctant reader, in spite of the fact that my father published over 70 books. Now I write action-adventures & mysteries, especially for tween boys, that avid boy readers and girls enjoy just as much.

    My blog, Books for Boys recently reached # 1 on Google.

    Keep up your good work concerning reading.
