We had a nice weekend. Ben, Katy, Margaret and Baylor came for a visit on Saturday. Amelia, Kendall and Landon joined us as well. The Cousins were so happy to see each other!! Since we are all going to the beach together soon, I did not even get out my camera to snap some pictures. Landon is so excited about the Beach...every day he wants to know if it is the day we are going to the beach. I hope it lives up to his expectations.
And we did receive some rain along with a vicious thunderstorm yesterday but hey, we will take it. Our lawn and plants were happy to get a good long drink of water.
My reading marathon continues. I finished The Midwife's Confession by Diane Chamberlain. It was "ok". It would be a good beach read. College friends, Noelle, Emerson and Tara have remained close in the years after graduating, living in the same town and sharing each others lives. When Noelle commits suicide, Emerson and Tara are shocked to learn that their friend had kept many secrets from them over the last 12 years. One secret involves a baby that was switched at birth. I thought parts of the book were fairly predictable but it kept me reading just to see how the novel resolved itself. Now I am reading, The Reading Group. It is an older book that I found at the Booksale Room in the Library. Set it England, it follows the lives of a group of ladies who meet once a month to eat dinner and discuss a book. Being an Anglophile, I have enjoyed this book and I am almost at the end! At the rate I am going I may have to make a Booksale Room run before we leave for vacation.
Back to swim lessons with Kendall today! She has been practicing and is eager to show Miss Anita what she has learned!
