Not the best book I’ve ever read and not the worst either. The characters in this book certainly aren’t very likable…that’s for sure.



Our sunflowers are finally blooming! They aren’t the GINORMOUS sunflowers we grew several summers ago, but I still like them. I think I might like these ones even better because they are small enough that they aren’t doing to fall over from the weight of the flower. Either way, they bring a little bit of happiness to our backyard.

We were stuck in traffic for quite a while because a bus had caught on fire a little ways up the road, so we got the joy of spending some quality time with these cows as we inched our way along the highway.

This is the first apple from our tree. I would like to report that is was the best tasting apple ever, but I would be lying. We aren’t sure what kind of apples they are, but they’re either a little on the tart side or this one wasn’t quite ripe.



We hosted a sixth grade digital scavenger hunt tonight. It was so much fun!!! The boys were divided into two teams and they had a list of things they either had to do or find around the neighborhood and they had to either take pictures of or make videos of what was on the list. This is a picture of one of the group’s feet which was one of the things that was on their list. The boys did a great job and it was so much fun to see what they found.

After they were done they played a game of touch football for about an hour. They were all happy and sweaty by the time parents started showing up to take everyone home.

The boys and I took the subway to Arlington. It was SO HOT that day, but I am glad we made the journey. Not only did they get to see the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, but they also got to see the changing of the guard and the grave of JFK and his family.
