Over the last week, while we were looking at this:
And so much more on the Mississippi Gulf Coast,
Our little piece of Pennsylvania did this:
It’s beautiful here (despite the fact that I haven’t done my spring cleaning yet).
We’re back from vacation now. Between beach visits, fantastic southern food, and hanging out with their adoring grandparents, my twins devoured a number of books. M has been reading Ann M. Martin’s The Baby-sitters Club series, and coincidentally, S has been reading books referenced in The Baby-sitters Club. For example, while M. was reading The Ghost at Dawn’s House (Baby-sitters Club #9), she came across a reference to Beverly Cleary’s Ramona and Her Father, which her twin was in the middle of reading at the same time.
Meanwhile, I’ve been reading Megan McDonald’s Judy Moody books to the Little Z. She will be five next month, so I guess she’s not that little anymore.
I intended to read A Man Called Ove, but I ended up giving it to Mr. AMB (temporarily!) while I worked on my project with the girls: Anusha of Prospect Corner (based on Anne of Green Gables). We’re drafting Chapter 27 this week. 🙂
I’m looking forward to catching up on all the blog posts I missed while I was away. Have a great weekend, and Happy Easter to those who celebrate it.
Update: Anusha of Prospect Corner, our multicultural update to Anne of Green Gables, is out now! For more information on it (and to see reviews), check out:
