Even though I had a whole week to work on projects and and have fun with the kids and read and paint...I didn't finish nearly as much as I had hoped to mainly because midweek all of my kids came down with a pretty bad cold. We managed to get in a movie, some yardwork, and we built a dresser before everyone got sick, so it wasn't a lost week, but still.
Oh, and my husband and I finished watching 24 Legacy. Does anyone else think that it's cheating that in the last episode, there was a 12 hours later to make the total hours of the series 24? Anyhoo, it was like old times, being stressed out for an hour every Monday.
What We're Reading
Sometimes, I read books that get into my dreams. It's unusual for a book to start coloring my dreams the second day I read it, but that is what All the Light We Cannot See did. The last I read a book that got into my dreams, I had to stop reading because I was dreaming about airplane crashes, and then not sleeping the rest of the night. Unbroken was the best book I never finished.
My son is rereading the Fablehaven series after reading the first book of the sequel series, Dragonwatch. If your kids enjoy fantasy, I highly recommend the Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull. It is a good, solid fantasy story and I am impressed how the characters face moral dilemmas very similar to the dilemmas kids that age face in real life.
What I'm Writing
This week I published a post about the resources we used for studying Ancient Israel, you can read it here. My flashback post is one I wrote a few months ago where I reviewed The Ology and explained how I use it in our morning time.
