It's Monday and we are going to New York City!


Hey everybody! How are you? As you read this, the husband, the sister and I are most likely camped out in Central Park so we can go and see Into The Woods tonight. Hooray! We are celebrating my sister's birthday by sitting in line reading before enjoying some Sondheim in Central Park. 

This past week, the smallest reader in the house had a ton of fun at Vacation Bible School. My house is newly decorated with various crafts involving fish, crabs, and sharks and those catchy songs may never leave my head. 

Also, we read some books this week. I know, I know, you are shocked....

    1. Thank you Tanya! We had a great time, although I think I slept most of this morning. Leaving at 3:30 to take the first train into the city and getting back at 2:30 the next morning makes a girl tired!
