How was your week? Ours was busy, but good. Natalie started voice lessons on Monday. After being initially very nervous, she loved it, and can’t wait to go back next week.

All of the kids are finishing up Archery. There’s one more class next Thursday, then a tournament on Saturday. (With Jonathan’s birthday party/game blowout slumber party on Friday. Busy weekend.)

That’s next weekend, though. This weekend will be relatively quiet. We’re going to Michelle’s for a playdate this afternoon. After dinner tonight, we’ll go cheery Nan’s best friend Caitie on at her soccer game.

Tomorrow – library sale! Woo hoo!

Sunday, hopefully the Seahawks will play like an NFL team, unlike last Sunday. ‘Nuff said.

~ Bembo’s Zoo – Hat tip: Shannon at Rocks in My Dryer. Beautifully done and creative.

~ Win The Liar’s Diary at J. Kaye’s Book Blog.

~ Go, Jordin Sparks! How wonderful to see a young woman unashamed to stand for purity. And what kind of disgusting man shames the Jonas Brothers for desiring to save themselves for marriage?

~ If you, like me, get giddy at the idea of a new notebook just waiting to be written in, check this out.

~ This teacher sure has a story to share with his students.

~ Someone has actually created a blog that lists all the books that only exist inside other books – The Invisible Library.

At Books and Movies this week:

~ Review of The Heretic’s Daughter by Kathleen Kent.

~ “Waiting On” Wednesday.

~ Review of The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall.

~ The Sunday Salon.
