reading list

I finished A Tangle of Gold—and with it the Colors of Madeleine series—and I seriously think you should make this your 2017 Vacation Reading Series. It was very satisfying.

I am going to be reviewing A Face Like Glass and The Star Thief soon for the blog because they were both totally review-worthy.

We are reading The Lives of Christopher Chant for our family readaloud right now and enjoying it thoroughly.


at home

Cookie of the week: Snickerdoodles

We’ve all been putting so much time and energy into Jason’s school, so it’s really exciting that he pretty much has a full class for fall. Yay, Jas!
