More Books!!

If there is anything that we might do right around here as far as school is concerned, it’s read.  Here are some books we are currently reading:


Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry is being read by my girls for their Language Arts class.  I like to have conversations with them about what they are reading, so I decided I better go ahead and get to reading!  So far, it is amazing.  I love being able to ask better questions to the girls after reading the same chapter that they just read.  There is more emotion and deeper thoughts when someone is reading along with you.  It takes up time, but it is worth it!

Ruby is reading a biography on Ben Carson and just finished a couple of small biographies for the second time. She is also reading one of the Harry Potter books.  That is where I draw the line….don’t think I will be reading Harry Potter any time soon.

Mack is semi-obsessed with mysteries.  He has read Third Grade Detectives books and always enjoys them.  We bought this spy book from Barnes N Noble the other day and well, let’s just say, there are a few words that aren’t used in our home in the book and some pre-teen boy/girl jargon that I am able to skip because I read this one out loud to him.  He LOVES it and begs me for more chapters every day.  I won’t share the title because I don’t want to encourage you to let your kid read it alone…it would need some parental guidance (i.e.. skip the bad words and leave out how beautiful the boy thinks the girl is).  The actual story line is good and keeps Mack’s attention BIG TIME.


And what else do I have to do that is more important than sitting with my cute little boy on the comfy couch while it’s freezing  and raining outside?!?

He is also reading Ribsy for his Language Arts class.


I am also reading a book on discipleship.  It’s a good one, too!  I am taking it very slowly at this point.


This next book is very interesting to me.  While I disagree with the author of BRAIN MAKER on how old the earth is, I do think what he is saying is spot on….he just hasn’t come to the realization that God made our bodies in such an amazing way.  I wholeheartedly believe God did an amazing job on our bodies and that we have much to learn in how to take care of them while we live on this earth.  But ultimately, this is not our home and this is not our final body.  Thank the Lord!  In the meantime, this is a good read on the importance of gut health and how it affects EVERYTHING.

Josh is reading Awe by Paul David Tripp.  I will take that one once he is finished.  Would love to hear any of your book recommendations as well!  We {heart} a good book!
