Join us each weekend for Celebrate This Week with Ruth Ayres.
When we pause to celebrate, we find the joy.
A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember.
Celebrating grandsons, books, family, and poetry this week!
Friday was better! Jack's parents are sleep training my sweet boy which means that Grandma is also supporting that effort. Wednesday was wickedly challenging for me, but Friday was filled with smiles and snuggles and giggles and lots of rollovers, and three short naps. I'm sure one would have been much longer if that
doggone garbage truck hadn't come by!
Jack's big yawn . . . almost nap time.
Teddy's first trip to the National Zoo!
This boy has a 1st birthday next week!
I came home from Friday's battle with the traffic and escaped upstairs to finish Lauren Wolk's new book, Beyond the Bright Sea.
I loved Wolf Hollow, but I adore this new book.
Add it to your summer reading list!
And I'm wondering, will there be a sequel?
Just did a little research on that
and here's the answer from an interview with the author -
"...the characters of Crow, Osh and Maggie remain very much on her mind. 'They’re wonderful, wonderful misfits,' Wolk says. 'I miss them terribly. So maybe I’ll write a sequel.'"
I'm crossing my fingers for that maybe to become a certainty.
Niece Kara and I enjoyed our nightly ritual of watching Call the Midwives. She's new to the series and I loved re-watching the episodes with her. She headed home to Oklahoma on Thursday. And texted me last night with a pic of the screen as she and her mom settled in to watch the midwives. She mentioned that she
needs to come back every June. I'll be ready!
I managed to get back to Poetry Friday yesterday. I do love
hanging out and learning with these poetry loving friends!
