If you've never read Harry Potter before, you really need to go out and buy books 1-7, take a week off from everything, get your favorite snacks and just sit and read them - ALL OF THEM!!! These are my favorite books EVER! I will re-read these every year for the rest of my life!!!!
I finished the last book (#7 - Deathly Hallows) about 72 hours after I bought it. The next day, I started with book #1 again (listened to the CD while I painted the addition). I'm on book #2 already.
This week has been different. Tim, Kyle, Keenan, Tyler and Ethan have been at Camp Bud Schiele - a boy scout camp in Rutherfordton. Tim took some pictures of the boys at camp and I will post them as soon as he gets back with the camera. He comes home tomorrow - I need to clean the house and go shopping for some 'real' food instead of just boxed macaroni and cheese and toast. Dallin, Hayleigh and Kirsten have been driving each other crazy. You know it's bad when I give Kirsten bubbles and let her blow them in the living the room just to keep her from bothering Dallin and Hayleigh while they are being quiet building Legos. Kyle was here til Monday night since he played in a soccer tournament this past weekend and couldn't leave on Sunday with the other scouts. It was great weather for a tournament! Absolutely beautiful for July in NC! Anyway, Kyle put a bucketful of sand in the kids' wagon for Hayleigh and Kirsten to play with. Hayleigh came up with the idea of adding water and I figured "what the heck" - at least they're not fighting with each other or crying (again!).
