Book List for February 2018

The Same Sweet Girls' Guide to Life. Cassandra King.*

Stitches. Anne Lamott*

Her Fearful Symmetry. Audrey Niffenegger*

The Western Star. Craig Johnson*

The Child in the Family. Maria Montessori *

Favorite: Same Sweet, I guess.

Least favorite: a tie between the horror book that I didn't realize was horror even though it had supernatural twins with unhealthy twinness (Niffenegger) and the one about the murderous cross dresser that had a lot of lazy tropes and ended on a cliffhanger (Johnson, who has really tested my patience with the last 3 Longmire mysteries even though I'll probably read the next book in one sitting).

100 pompoms for 100 days of school!

July 2

Evelyn wanted me to post a picture of her with her toy cat, Indigo. So here they are.

She went to the dentist with her dad today, where they both found out their teeth are healthy and normal. She's having a great summer!

Her mom really needs to post here more often, and would like to tell you about the book list for these past 6 months...
