The Patmos Deception by Davis Bunn

Sometimes it seems as if just when we get under us and are ready to run, the bottom falls out once again and we fall even harder than before. Carey Mather's experiences that at the beginning of The Patmos Deception. But will a visit from an old friend help her to overcome her biggest fears?

Carey Mathers feels as though she has things all under control. She has a great degree, a great job lined up and is excited at the possibility of living in Greece and doing a job she has been working hard to secure. But once she arrives in Greece, she finds her place of employment closed and it at an utter loss once again. Then she receives a call from an old friend, Nick Hennessy, who wants to hire her to work with him on a story about disappearing Greek antiquities. Figuring she has nothing to lose, Carey agrees and quickly finds herself in the middle of an intense investigation of an organized crime group. And, not only does Carey fear the disappearance of more artifacts, but also that Nick may steal her heart.

Davis Bunn has written a great book. It is my first one by him and I like it quite a bit. There was just enough suspense, history, and romance to keep it all interesting. I enjoyed learning about a place that I knew very little about. And Bunn left enough unanswered questions by the end, that I anticipate another book with same characters in the near future.

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.
