Inside Threat by Jason Elam and Steve Yohn

Looking for a high paced, action packed book? Inside Threat by Jason Elam and Steve Yohn is for you.
In post 9/11 world, terror is all around us. That is something Scott Ross knows firsthand as a counterterrorism director. When a series of small attacks scattered across the country begins to escalate, Ross knows these attacks are just a diversion a bigger one to come. Home grown Islamic terrorists overrun that National Cathedral during a state funeral, Ross needs to come up with a plan to save all of the hostages. Will his friend, linebacker Riley Covington, come through with the rescue plan once again?
When I picked up this book, I was looking for an engaging read that grabbed me and held on until the very end. And boy, did I get one. I found the plot and characters real and relatable. The faith of the characters was present and real, but not over bearing. It was only after finishing the book that I realized it was the fourth in a series. While I am sure my reading would be enhanced by reading the previous books, I thought it read very well as an independent book. I am looking forward to going to back and reading the books that came first. This  is a great book.

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
