Hello, reader friends!!! I apologize for being scarce this week, life has been a bit crazier than usual! I’ve been busy driving our kids to daily swimming lessons (forty minutes each way) and it hasn’t been smooth sailing for all of them so we spent an afternoon getting some extra practice in a friend’s pool, too.
Well, y’all can guess how often I spend that much time outdoors and I’m obviously out of practice because I forgot one important step… sunblock. Fortunately, the younger kids were fine but my oldest (bookworm) and I ended up with a sunburn on our faces, necks, and arms. As y’all can imagine, we’ve been taking extra precautions since then and all the kids are excited about more lessons next week.
Tell me all about your swim lesson or pool fun experiences, reader friends! Did y’all have swimming lessons as kids? Have you taken your own children? Do we have any self-taught sink-or-swimmers?
The Orphan’s Wish by Melanie Dickerson
The Holy Land
“Ala ad’din’s mother’s eyes were closed as she lay on her funeral bier.“
Melanie Dickerson authors one of the few young adult series that I personally enjoy. Don’t get me wrong, there are several authors who are creating quality Christian fiction within the young adult genre. It just isn’t my go-to happy place. If y’all are looking for some great YA recommendations, check out my friends at Reading Is My SuperPower, Bookworm Mama, and Fiction Afficiando.
