The Cast of Stones by Patrick W. Carr

The king of the land is dying and has no descendents to take over the throne. Will the delicate balance of the land be over thrown as selection process takes over? In a small village far away from the capital, a young man named Errol take messenger job hoping for an easy gold. But, when he finds himself being chased by assassins and then part of a journey to the capitol, he quickly realizes his life will never be the same.

Errol learns from his traveling companions that he is a reader. That is, a person can create and cast lots to help with a decision making process. Errol had grown up thinking he was a useless orphan, so this new found purpose takes a while for him to grow into. But through a series of battles and duels and through the teaching of his friends along the way, Errol learns that there is more to him than even he at first realized.

This was a great read! While summarizing or explaining the book seems confusing and far-fetched  if you like fantasy literature you will love this book. I cannot wait for the rest in the series to come out to learn what happens to Errol and all of his companions. Not to mention who becomes king! This was a great book!

I was given a copy of this book to review by Bethany House Publishers. All opinions are my own. I was not required to write a positive review.

Mataya's 5th Birthday!

We had a great time celebrating Mataya's birthday yesterday. 
It took her a bit to decide what she wanted on her cake. First is was a bunny, then a flower and then she finally settled on a bunny with some flowers by it.
 She declared it perfect, so that was great!

Here she is with a few of her gifts. A few requests were her own flashlight (not pictured), bunny slippers, activity books with stickers and the biggest one was "slide on shoes."
After cake and presents Mataya said with pure joy, "This was the best birthday ever!"

A Visit from Emil, Karisa and Zeke

A few weeks ago we had a great visit from Emil, Karisa and Zeke. There was lots of cousin love...  Oom Emil love....
 And Oom Wilbert and tractor magazine love...
 There were lots of walks with Oma...
 And trips to the beach...
 They were here over Canada, so there was the annual Church Picnic, of course...

 It was a cool day, but no rain.
 But yes, I did wear my sweater on the beach.
 We also took a family morning and visited The Butterfly House
 It was lovely and peaceful and most of the family enjoyed it. Zeke was a little nervous the whole time, but over all did well. We also had a picnic lunch and saw the Young Company Show at the Confederation Center.
We had a great time and were sad to see them go. Hopefully the time will just fly by until our next visit.

What's Going On?

So I have been really bad at blogging lately. Anyway, here are some highlights from the last little bit.

And the biggest news is that Joash's other front tooth fell out. He was pretty excited about this and now has a pretty big hole in his mouth.
