Short and Sweet

This week was full of busyness with orthodontist appointments, flooring estimates, farmers' market and the like, but this post is short and sweet like summer.

And while summer is nearly over and the farmers' market season is drawing to a close, Bobby, Emily, my sister, and I are still managing some weekend day trips. This past weekend we visited the Findlay, Ohio area where we stopped in at the Findlay Ghost Town. We saw old homes and buildings, listened to a live band, shopped some of the local vendors, and ate some kettle corn and cinnamon pecans.

We also did some geocaching both going and coming.


And, as usual, I managed to make a little time for some reading. This week I read Ellie in Concert which is  the newest book in Mike Wu's Ellie series. In the first book Ellie was an artist, but in this story, Ellie turns her talents to music in order to help a tired friend. Mike's soft and adorable illustrations, as well as his fun sense of story, makes this a wonderful read for children from four to eight.
