Historical Fiction

When I was a kid I read 1 historical fiction book..and hated it. Haven't read any since then...until this week. My Dad loves historical fiction & started reading a series by Bodie & Brock Thoene ( pronounced Tay-nee) called the AD Chronicles. He wanted me to read them too. I thought "ok, I"ll read one for him" I was hooked just reading the prologue!! WOO HOO!

And I just found out that Janette Oke is co-authoring a historical fiction series. Book 1 just came out! YIPPEE! My reading wish list just expanded by like 10 books! lol

A new experience

As you all know, I"m an "older mom" Our 2 boys are raised & we are helping out with some of my brother's grandchildren. I am constantly amazed @ the changes since our boys were small. Today the youngest one & I went to Meijer's. I looked for one of those children's carts that stores sometimes have. lol Was I in for a surprise!! Yes, they have them..they had 7 of them in different colors. But here is the surprise..they have tv's in them! ROFLROFL They cost $1 & the money goes to the local children's hospitals. The little guy loved it! He picked the cart that would be showing Backyardigans! It was histerical! He was all smiles & would lean out the car to tell me what was going on on the tv! lol
