Thunder by Bonnie S. Calhoun

Selah has always felt different from the rest of her family. And on the day before her eighteenth birthday, she learns the man she thought was her father really isn't and her biological father is a part of the outcast group. Knowing this, Selah knows why she has always felt like an outcast. And she also knows she will never be able to live at home again. Thunder by Bonnie S. Calhoun follows Selah on her journey from home toward the truth.

Selah did not want to marry the person her father was forcing her to marry. So, she decided to try and prove her worth by capturing on of the “Landers” who float across the ocean to the coastal village her family lives in. The government the mountains will give a big reward for any “Landers” who are brought to them still wearing the mark on their face that distinguishes them. But instead of capturing her the Lander, Selah ends up befriending him and travelling with him north to find her biological father and learn the truth about who she is.

This was a great book! The only big problem I have with it is that I have to wait until the fall of 2015 to read the second book in this series. The world was captivating, the characters hold a lot of secrets yet and there is just enough romance to keep things interesting. I will certainly be reading the next one when it is released.

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

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.
