The Sunday Post ~ 8/16/20

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

~this meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~

It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

******************************************

Personal Highlights:

The highlight this week was celebrating my daughter’s birthday. For about 9 months I’ll have 3 teenagers. But, then my oldest will be leaving his teen years behind. These are bittersweet years preparing them to go off into the world. But I am so very blessed!

My oldest was awarded a $500 scholarship this week from a local group dealing with water and soil conservation, so that was another highlight this week, especially since I’ve been paying completely out-of-pocket for his school.

  3. Happy birthday to your daughter and congrats to your son! # teens in the house! Whew! Hats of to you! I haven’t read Written in Red and Becoming Mrs. Lewis but they sound interesting! My favorite books this week were Court of Bitter Thorn by Kay L. Moody and Accidentally in Love by Belinda Missen. Oh, I also read an extended excerpt of Shyhunter by Marie Lu, and it was excellent!

  4. Congratulations to you son! How wonderful! I felt like I was the only person not giving the Voting Booth all the stars. I actually DNFed, and I have really enjoyed Colbert’s books in the past, but it just didn’t work for me.
