Summer Reading

Last summer Jasmine and I read through Just for Me: The Bible. Several other girls joined us. If you were one of them and didn't finish it, this is a good time to do it. I still have bags with the book cover on it for those who finish it.

This summer Jasmine and I are reading through this book:

I'm not sure if I can say it was my favorite one to write or not. Each one is special in one way or another. But I like the idea of helping each girl find her potential and talents and figure out how to use them. The crafts are very doable because crafts aren't my strong point so I create crafts I can do!

If you want to know more about the book, you can read the reviews down the side of this blog or go to my web page and read the first chapter. Maybe you'll want to join us in reading this book this summer.

Tyler coming in. He did really well. They called him Taylor instead of Tyler when it was his turn to get his diploma so his friends didn't cheer not realizing it was him but he handled it well.

I had to go get Jasmine so I didn't see him from before graduation until 4:32 the next morning when he got home from his all night party at a sports center.

Ty with a caricature of him they did at the party.

My sister chopping vegetables for the open house.

Ty & Adam making a dessert.

My sister has some funny pictures of him after graduation. He was in a really goofy mood and I missed it : ( I need to upload them to my computer and then I'll post them.
