New books and a New Project...

I love to read and I have recently acquired some new books from my local book store and from the book fair we had last week at school where I teach. I can't wait to read them.
I am currently reading two books. Dragonfly In Amber is the second book in a series by Diana Gabaldon. I read the first book, Outlander, back in February. This one is just as good and it's borrowed from the library. Gotta love the library...
I Still Believe is the story of Jeremy Camp. He is a Christian singer/artist and this book tells his life story. I love his music. My friend Penny let me borrow it and it has been very interesting so far. God has really used Jeremy's life in a remarkable way. 
I love finding new crochet patterns. Sometimes, instead of printing them out I write them down on a scrap piece of paper. This is a pattern I found on Lion Brand for a wash cloth.
I am working on a new project...

And, we are finally using a crochet wash cloth for the dishes. Well, I should say the kids are... So far it's been hard for them to get use to because they have only used a sponge with a scrubby side up until now.
Now for a little "mom bragging".  My son, who is a high school junior, runs for the varsity track team. In yesterdays track meet he ran the 800 meter in 2 minutes 5 seconds, coming in first place and creating a new personal best for himself. My daughter, who is a high school freshman, is on the pole vault team and will be at her very first track meet next thursday.  So proud of my kids...

  5. Your children sound very sporty, well done them! I love the Outlander series of books, and read them a few years ago, never heard of Jeremy Camp, so will go and look him up now x
