It's been a busy week, though not quite as hectic as last week. The following are five things for which I enjoyed most from my week:
1. Autumn. I love the cool crisp days of autumn. I love when the leaves begin to change colors, but have not yet dropped. I took this picture yesterday at a farm where we went pumpkin picking.2. Three year-olds and Pumpkin Excitement. As I mentioned, we went to a farm yesterday to pick out pumpkins. There was lots to do besides pumpkin picking and my daughter had a blast. She picked out a pumpkin that she said was "just my size." We saw lots of farm animals. I love watching life through her eyes, it's always so exciting.
3. Book of the week. I took a break from everything on my nightstand to read a book that while not exactly connected to the Maud Hart Lovelace Reading Challenge is closely related. I read That Dodger Horse by Delos W. Lovelace, Maud's husband. It was a lot of fun to read and I'm hoping to post a review early to mid next week. I particularly enjoyed the book because Delos has his own writing style, yet I can still see parallels between his writing and that of his fictional counterpart, Joe.
4. Surprise of the week. Along the topic of the MHLRC... Since I own all the books in the Betsy-Tacy and Deep Valley series I am now on the hunt for the rest of Maud's books. This has proven a little difficult as 90% of the other titles are out of print and those that can be found tend to be expensive. So you can imagine my surprise and excited when I discovered an affordable copy What Cabrillo Found. I ordered it and was doubly surprised when it arrived within only a couple days. I probably won't have time to read it this year, but I'm fine with saving it for next fall when we return for the 3rd annual Maud Hart Lovelace Reading Challenge.
5. Song of the week. Walking On the Stars as performed by Group 1 Crew. It's not the greatest video (fan made), but it was the best I could find. Enjoy!
