Good morning! I'm a few days late for my weekly recap but at least I'm getting one written this week! Life is getting a bit more manageable now that the kids are back in school and we're on a normal routine again. We still have a few activities, but nothing too crazy. Music and dance lessons seem to be our big things this school year. We have piano, tuba, dance and chorus all going on now! M has decided to join the Battle of the Books this year. I had a great time reading the Battle books along with Carter back when he did it in 4th grade, so I'm looking forward to it. This year's list has about half of the books Carter read, which means we already own half the books. Nice!

What I'm reading
I finished Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell and really enjoyed it. I read Fangirl a while ago and didn't write a review so I may try to review both together. Now I'm reading Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry and then I'll be moving to my October book club selection, The Dinner by Herman Koch.
What my kids are reading
The Genius Files: Mission Unstoppable by Dan Gutman and has started on The Genius Files #2: Never Say Genius.
The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton for school. He seemed to like it but said it was sad. I agree. He is still reading Seeker by Arwen Elys Dayton. Thank you to everyone who provided ideas for him last week. We have a great list of books to check out next time we head to the library!
