The weather was so nice last weekend that we threw our bikes in the back of the truck and drove to the river for a bike ride.
My two oldest kids have class on Mondays so I ran errands with my youngest. After dropping off some donations at the Hospice thrift store, we popped in to buy a book or two for my oldest who is between book series, then I thought I would look for a few books for my daughter who will be needing a few easy chapter books in the near future, so I picked up a few more. After trading in a few books at the used book store we picked up a few more books there and seven dollars out of pocket later I ended up with a small stack of books:
I am especially happy with the D'Aulaire's Columbus biography (another homeschool mom must have traded it in) and the volume of A History of US since I wanted to preview the series as a potential American history spine for the future.

My son dove right into Ten True Tales: World War II Heroes. He has been very interested in WWII history lately. He is also reading The Ranger's Apprentice Series. My daughter just read her first chapter book, the first Junie B. Jones book, and then she read the next two in the series.
I am reading Substitute by Nicholson Baker, Humble Roots by Hannah Anderson, and Home Education by Charlotte Mason.
This week I wrote about some picture books about winter that I enjoyed reading with my kids and a big question that my daughter asked me because I have been reading her challenging books.
I enjoyed the selection of poems in 11 Poems every Young Man Should Know and the article Let Them Eat Steak, both from the Circe Institute.
