I feel like I really did a lot of today. I just seemed to have so much energy. I know I do have more energy, since I started on this life change.
I started the day off checking my email. Then off to clean the bathroom. I got the towels washed, counter, toilet, and tub cleaned. Then I did the floors.
I knew the boys wouldn’t clean it while I am in Gig Harbor, WA taking care of my daughter, Sarah, after her foot surgery.

A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park who is a Newbery Medalist for A Single Shard. This book is based on a true story.
The New York Times bestseller A Long Walk to Water begins as two stories, told in alternating sections, about two eleven-year-olds in Sudan, a girl in 2008 and a boy in 1985. The girl, Nya, is fetching water from a pond that is two hours’ walk from her home: she makes two trips to the pond every day. The boy, Salva, becomes one of the “lost boys” of Sudan, refugees who cover the African continent on foot as they search for their families and for a safe place to stay. Enduring every hardship from loneliness to attack by armed rebels to contact with killer lions and crocodiles, Salva is a survivor, and his story goes on to intersect with Nya’s in an astonishing and moving way.
This was a wonderful book that I think is good for children to read. They can see how life is in some countries with luck they will learn to appreciate what they have. The story is about two children who the main thing in their life is survival. You read what they have to do to get water and food to survive. I think it is good for people to see that this still goes on today. It is a must read so you can find out how Salva’s life intersects with Nya’s.

This is Whoopsie by Andrew Cangelose, Josh Shipley
This is supposed to be a book about all the different things moose can do, like leaping and jumping and being really tall. But maybe Whoopsie isn’t the right moose for the job. You might want to pick a different moose for this book. Maybe instead we can do a book about falling down a lot? Yeah! Whoopsie would be great at that. This hilarious book about a clumsy moose shows that sometimes being a little different can make one great story.
This is an adorable book about a moose that couldn’t do what other moose can do. I think this was about learning yourself. Learning that you don’t have to be like everyone else. You have special things that you can do that may be different from what other moose do. Fall down and just get up again.
I will be buying this book for my twin granddaughter’s. Of course, living in Alaska a moose book is always something to look forward too.

Hoping it isn’t the last camping trip for the year. The weather has been so nice we are still camping. We are not taking the camper off of the truck yet. I will be gone for a couple of weeks but we are hoping that me may be able to get a couple more trips in before the snow when I get back. We are having an Indian Summer and really enjoying it.
We loaded up as soon as David and Dusty got home from work and off we went. Heather, Dan and the babies were meeting us at Knik River.
When we arrived at Knik River we found a place to camp. I was sitting watching David get the campfire ready to start and noticed all the beautiful colors in the mountains.
We enjoyed watching the planes fly over and could see the bridge that the kids had to cross to get to us.
The kids arrived just as the sun was going down. Continue reading “Knik River”

Learn About Loss by Cassandra Clare
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I enjoyed this book about beating the demon at yet another Shadow Market. It was nice to see a new character, Iron Sister, you don’t hear a lot about them. I hope Sister Emilia is in more, so we can find out if she makes it all the way into the Iron Sister. I liked the surprise she got for Brother Zachariah, Jem, at the end of the book. I am not going to spoil it, so you will have to read it to find out what happened.
Hope you enjoy this book. Let me know if you have read it or plan to read it.
