Just a Wednesday in June

Just wanted to drop a pin on the map. I’m here.

The kids are all finished with school tomorrow; three have been done for two weeks, and the fourth had the tough job of continuing on for those extra days whilst the siblings played.

I’m regrouping my homeschool kids tomorrow for a play time and to give them their first summer book club book: The Penderwicks: A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy by Jeanne Birdsall. It’s the first in a wonderful, witty, charming, sort of old-fashioned series of books, and we’ll read them all this summer. I have to say that I was completely inspired when I discovered that the author, Ms. Birdsall of Massachusetts, didn’t begin the book publishing business until age 41 or 42. See, life does begin at 40.

It feels like change is in the air. All senses are alert; I’m listening hard, hoping to have keen ears and a wise heart, wide eyes, sensitive soul.

    Is that the library book club? I think Levi needs some good reading motivation…..

    No, the library book club just had their final meeting of the school year last week. So this is just my own thing–do you want to come?? Tomorrow at 10 a.m. – 12 p.m., my house for a play-time –and introduction to the new book; then meet again in 2 weeks for book club discussion. I think there’s about 8 kids coming. I’ll email you in case you don’t see this msg by tomorrow! ♥
