The above picture is just a reminder of how quickly summer has passed. Planning to enjoy every nice day before the snow shovels appear.
The past week has been really busy and fun with not too much time for reading, but there is one book that I'm reading and enjoying -- The Last September by Nina de Gramont. It's one of those stories that hooked me early on and made me anxious to turn each page to find out more. In some ways it reminds me of Life Drawing, by Robin Black a book which I really enjoyed.
We went to a few fun children's museums with the grand kiddos and I probably had as much fun as they did. We painted, did construction work, visited The Very Hungry Caterpillar's house, read books, played in a spaceship, pretended we were doctor's and dentists, played grocery store and cashier, junior carpenters, played with the largest collecting of Lego's I've ever seen, and even experienced a hurricane simulator. Here are a few pics from some of the activities --
Kids do know how to have fun
Back to books -- I did get a few new books in the mail last week.

- Pacific; Simon Winchester (sent by Harper)
- The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up; Maria Kondo (purchase)
- Season of the Dragonflies; Sarah Creech (sent by William Morrow)
I hope to spend some time on the deck reading and relaxing today. Hope you enjoy your Sunday!
