Booking for Fall

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

So if you've been following this little blog for any time at all, you will learn that I am crazy about books. I mean, I even answered an ad on craigslist giving away 8 - that's right, EIGHT - boxes full of children's books (completely free). They are now filling two bookcases and are all too exited to be in the classroom one day to be utilized.  (If you live in the area and are in need of some - come at me!  I have about 2 of those I sorted through and wanted to pass on) And let me tell you, there were so many Caldecott and Newberry books, and others I remember from my childhood, I thought I was going to burst, I couldn't contain it. There were also 2 that will be very special to me - a children's version of the bible, complete with illustrations in an easy to read format, and a big book of Christian crafts, ready for my first days in preschool sunday school coming up.
But enough about that. As I've had a free weekend after my summer classes and before my fall classes, I have read the following:
This is absolutely hilarious, and so true in so many ways.

I will always love reading Clive Staples Lewis.
The girl who had it all, and lost it all - in less than a day. A great lesson for women of all ages on how to get your priorities back on track when times get rough, and to F.R.O.G. (Fully Rely On God) through all situations. (Did you catch my sunday school reference?!)
Love love love. This is always by my desk and I'm learning how to pray for Marshall on a regular basis as he needs. This is something you'd regret if you passed on it!
So that's it for now... I had training for the fall program at work today and am getting excited...Thankfully I have my schedule as well, and the day that the majority of my homework is due I'm off - whoop! Also, I took in my dress to be fitted for the birthday ball (in October...better be prepared right?) and should have it in another week. I can't wait to show y'all and finally go to a Marine Corps birthday ball - this October is the Marines' 238th birthday! It's only 2 months away - it really came up on us out of nowhere this time. Also, I need to eat, and work on homework - first week of fall classes that I need to get organized and start on. (Can't wait to graduate next May and get that degree in my hands!! Thank you Liberty!!!) So that's all for now!


  1. My 4 year old and I have been indulging in some of my old childhood favorites! We read Strega Nona the other night, and it brought back so many happy childhood memories from Kindergarten! It's amazing how a book can do that!

  2. I love C. S. Lewis, his work never gets old!
