After church (and naps) we took Maddie to a nearby park. Izzy and I went for a short walk – it was almost too hot for her today (mid 80’s) to do much exercise. So we took it easy.
The park is right by the river and has a spring. Kids were jumping off the rope into the spring … I KNOW that water is cold!
There was lots for Maddie to check out…
Some of y’all asked me what I thought about “Water for Elephants”. Let me just say, first off, that I typically only read Christian books and this one is not. The story was really good, but there were a couple of parts that were very graphic (hard for me to read through), and there was also quite a bit of profanity. I’m going to try to start doing a little more reading. Kayla wants me to read “One Tuesday Morning”. I haven’t read any Karen Kingsbury books yet, but they (along with Francine Rivers books) are the hottest things going in our church library.
On a sad note, my cousins got news today that their dad had a massive stroke and wasn’t found for a day or two. He passed away this afternoon. He was my Aunt Rosemary’s husband (she passed away in October 2008). My heart is so heavy for them. It seems so soon since they lost their momma. We love you, Hood cousins!!
