A Fun Week

Here it is another Sunday already. My vacation just flew!

Kylie came to visit for three days and we read this book several times. She loves it! I know there is a second book about Ladybug Girl so I hope to buy it for her soon.

Lulu is Ladybug Girl and she has to figure out a way to entertain herself. Her big brother won't let her play with him ("He's a brat!" says Kylie.) so she makes her own fun and has a great time.

In between playing with Kylie, I read snatches of The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch. I'm a little late getting to this book since it's been out for awhile but it just never appealed to me. A friend lent me the book so I decided to give it a try and loved it.

Each little lesson is gently illustrated with a story. I had to wipe tears away quite a few times. I'm glad I read it a little bit at a time because it gave the ideas time to sink in.

Back to school tomorrow for 7 weeks and then it's summer vacation time!

The Last Lecture sounds intriguing!

oh, there's a video on YouTube too, about the last lecture. It sure is very moving and very motivating. You must search for it.

Vacations always seem to end all too quickly, don't they? I am glad you had a nice visit with Kylie!

I've heard about The Last Lecture. I can't say it really appeals to me either, but maybe if, like you, I end up reading it, I will enjoy it after all. I hear it's quite thought provoking.

I hope you have a great week!

Stunning NF book.
My daughter worked in a type of NP bookstore the summer after college and came across this book that we both wanted to read. She greatly enjoyed English in h.s.)
