Ray of Sunshine

Things have been pretty busy at our house.We are getting adjusted to life with my Mom and her little dog Bruno.My mom has Alzheimer's and can't live by herself anymore.For the most part things have been going pretty good.My 7 yr old daughter Rebecca is scared of my mom's dog though and even after 2 months is still mostly staying in her room to stay away from the dog.She has always been terrified of dogs and it doesn't help that Bruno,who is a long haired chiuaua,is yippy and growls about everything .
I bought games,play dough,puzzles,new coloring books and markers to keep Becca busy while she is in her room.I also try and take her with me on any outings I have to make and on Saturday I had one of my son's take the television out of my room and put it in Rebecca's room . She loves to watch the qubo channel and play Barbie on the x-box.
My mom enjoys being around all my kids and keeps telling me that Ruby is a,"Ray of sunshine." Ruby thinks grandma is pretty special too and pats and hugs on her any chance she gets.

I'm Blogging for Books

Sir Quinlan and the Swords of Valor by Chuck Black is the fifth book in the Knights of Arrethtrae series.It is an action filled christian allegory written for young adults. I chose this book as my first book to blog about because I thought my 13 year old son, who is an avid reader, would enjoy it. I have to say I really enjoyed reading this book myself and had a hard time putting it down. I had no problem handing it over to my son to read because there is nothing questionable in this book that I wouldn't want him to read.He read it in one afternoon and enjoyed it as much as I did.We are both looking forward to reading Chuck Black's other books in the Knights of Arrethtrae series.

Here is the first chapter for you to enjoy :
