Sometimes things are not always what they seem. That sentence rang true for this book on many different levels.

Heather is a driven career woman. She is working out a deal to sell her family’s land in Texas and get a huge contract that will guarantee her a promotion at work. Everything looks great until her mother and brother have a change in plans. Heather goes to Texas to try and sort things out and soon finds herself in the middle of something much bigger than she imagined. While trying to sort out the truth about her family, her father’s death and her feelings for a high school classmate, Heather finds she has to choose between the life she has and the life she discovers she really wants.

I will admit that when I started this book, I thought it was going to be another predictable story. The cover looked like it, the first few chapters seemed like it. But, boy was I wrong.  I don’t want to give too much away, but the plot had so many more layers than it first appeared. And it still had a happy ending which was nice. While the plot as a whole was a bit farfetched for me, it was so engaging that I really did not care.

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.
