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.

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.
