The Hero's Lot by Patrick W. Carr

Patrick W. Carr is back with the second book in the Staff and the Sword series, The Hero’s Lot. The story of Errol Stone continues as Errol is wrongly accused of a crime and sent on a journey to an enemy kingdom to find Sarin Valon, the corrupt church leader. Errol gathers around him an unlikely crew of people to aid and guide him along the way.
In the meantime, Martin and Luis are sent back to Errol’s home village to try to learn more about Errol. Once the truth is learned, Martin knows he must find Errol and share this knowledge with him.  Along their journey, Martin and Luis encounter the followers and the power of Aurae and learn to believe in things they did not count as truth before.
The Hero’s Lot is a great follow up to The Cast of Stones. Of course, now I cannot wait for the third book to come out to see what sort of adventure Errol is sent on next. This book was full of action, adventure and secrets that kept me quickly turning the pages, eager to know what happens next. If you enjoy fantasy, you will enjoy this installment in The Staff and the Sword series.

I was given a copy of this book to review from Bethany House Publishers. I was not required to submit a positive review.

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.
