Anyways, I have been packing non-stop. But I decided to "reward" myself with blogging if I got over 5 boxes packed in 2 hours. I did it. So, here I am.
I've been thinking about role models a lot the last few weeks. And people I admire. I also wanted to introduce ya'll to the ladies I work with in the stake Primary presidency. I admire them and think the world of them! I'm lucky to get to work with these amazing women:
Monica, Stake Primary President:
Dina, Stake Primary 1st Counselor:
Kim, Stake Primary Secretary:
I also wanted to let ya'll know about a couple of books I just finished reading:
This book is written for grown ups, although the main character is 11 years old. Flavia de Luce has a passion for poison, the vocabulary of an adult and a bicycle named Gladys. Her mother died when she was a baby and her father is extremely distant and more interested in his stamp collection than his three daughters.
The mystery begins with a dead blackbird shows up on the porch of the mansion where the de Luces live with a penny stamp stuck to it's beak. The next morning, Flavia finds a dead man in the cucumber patch. Flavia is determined to find out who killed the man with the help of her chemistry knowledge and Gladys.
This book was an enjoyable read. It's clever and witty. I think the girls (K2) enjoyed it also!
I can already tell that I'm going to miss these characters and this story when I finish with the series. More to come about Prydain soon. :-)
