Some things...

I have begun my summer reading. You all left some great titles/ideas and I am excited about tackling the list.

I went Thursday to the library with my list of books. Some of the books are not found at my library, some are already checked out (and I found out that if I want to reserve it, I have to pay 50 cents! I think this is ridiculous-does anybody else have to do this?), and some were waiting on the shelves for me to read them.

I got these three:
I have already started The Glass Castle and am enjoying it so far. I read Running with Scissors last summer and this is reminding me of that book some. The Glass Castle is not as dark, but I find myself making comparisons early on.

I'll let you ALL know my review of the books.
Matthew and I went to see Fiddler on the Roof Friday night. It is Topol's Farewell Tour. When he first walked out on stage, the crowd went crazy. I was a little bit surprised. But, considering how long he has played the role of Tevye, I understood. This website gives a little info on him. It's one of my favorite musicals and he was amazing.

And finally, check out this forecast...
It has been raining for the past 3 weeks. This forecast is absolutely amazing to me! I cannot wait to spend the week outside, soaking up some sun and enjoying our yard!
I hope you all have a great week.

Let me know what you think after you finish all of the books -- I am always looking for new ones and the only one I have read from that list is Snow Flower.

The weather is supposed to be great here too which is nice since preschool is out already and my boys are stircrazy from the rain over the past month!

My friends and I saw Jeannette Walls in Dallas after we read The Glass Castle. She was so inspiring!

Yea! Sunny days!!
