Caleb is feeling better, I’m finally getting spunky again, it’s just Grace who is sick-ish now. But not too sick for a trip to the library! Rich and I took the kids there this morning and I took my camera along, just for the fun of it. It’s chilly out, but the sun is shining. It takes us about 10 minutes to drive to the library and I like it because it’s outside of town, it’s a nice little library. I usually take the kids myself during the week so it was a treat to have Rich come along this time. There weren’t too many people there today. Jacob, Ethan, and Grace each have their own special library bag. They have their own library cards, too, but no one could find them. But they did find and take along their stuffed animals!
I had to return a video that our VCR “ate”, I was wondering if I would have to buy it but I didn’t, thankfully. I’m so grateful that we have free public libraries, but Rich says that I ruin it for our family by paying a fine every time I go! Today I had to pay 4 dollars. Yikes!
Caleb always runs as fast as he can to his favorite spot, the train table!
Here’s Grace with her stuffed kitten, picking out books. She’s been reading all kinds of animal books lately.
Here is handsome E, choosing a book for himself, with his brother Jacob looking on in the background.
I found this handsome guy (my husband) . . . . .Rich ended up choosing and taking home two huge computer books.
David was thrilled when his Daddy agreed to play a game of checkers with him.
This is the only “staged” photo, of myself. My friend Hannah (thank you Hannah!!!) sent me some books to read, so today I only checked out cookbooks. (besides, I was hungry)
Then I found little Caleb on his tummy, looking at a Thomas book with faithful Percy by his side.
Jacob and Ethan got right down on the floor to look at a comic book. Are they cute, or what? I told them they looked like they were siamese twins. Hard to believe that Jacob will be 11 on Monday. . . . . . .
I didn’t think David would look at a book without me telling him to, but he did! He looked at the same Thomas book that Caleb had found.
I just finished the most excellent book yesterday, I’ll attach the link below so you may order a copy. It’s written by John G Paton, who was a missionary in the mid 1800’s to cannibals. It’s 500 pages long but so good I wished that it was even longer than that. I tell you I laughed and cried through the whole thing, and my heart was so warmed by his amazing testimony. The book is crammed packed with glory to God. . . .very stirring words indeed. Please read it for yourself, you won’t be sorry.
The rest of my reading list:
The Twenty-fourth Of June, by Grace S. Richmond. This is a book that Hannah lent to me.
Safely Home, by Randy Alcorn. Another book from Hannah. (By the way, Hannah, I already read Stepping Heavenward, that’s why it’s not listed here.)
When People are Big, and God is Small, by Edward T. Welch. I have read most of this now, Joanna recently read it and recommended it.
he Puritan Family, by Edmund S. Morgan. From my Dad’s collection of books.
What about you? Do you like to read? What’s on your reading list these days?
