A Draw of Kings by Patrick W. Carr

A Draw of Kings, the final installment in The Staff and the Sword series by Patrick W. Carr brings the world of Illustra to the final battle for its life. Will the dark forces of the surrounding worlds prevail, or will light and hope of a new king and saviour overcome?

Errol and his companions return from their last journey to find the king is dead and the kingdom is in chaos. The only thing that will bring order is for the new king to be crowned. But the lots still cannot tell if Liam or Errol should be king. So, they each set out on different journeys to help the kingdom prepare for the impending battle that will come as soon as winter ends. Will the people from the boarding countries rally to help Illustra? And how will the herbwoman’s prophecy that either Liam or Errol must die, come true and lead to the salvation of Illustra once again?

Having read the first two books in this series, I was so excited to finish it off. And this book did not disappoint. The action kept me turning pages when I should have been doing other things. I just wanted to know who was going to be king and if Errol and Adora were going to be able to be together. This is a great series and one that would pick up and read again.

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

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.
