It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (June 11): 06/11/18
This is the last full week of school. With summer warming up, I'm having to water more frequently the few spots that don't currently have a drip system hooked up. Eventually I need to learn how our drip system is set up and figure out how to add to it.
Anyway, sometimes when I'm out front watering, I get to see my neighbors. Although we're in an urban area, we're literally at the edge of where it becomes rural. There's a horse trail that starts at the dead end of our street. So sometimes we see horses and riders. Like these two:
Last Tuesday was my daughter's Spring Music concert at school. She had a solo in Firework and they put on quite the show for that piece!
Thursday was the Drama Club's first performance of The Princess Bride where my daughter was Buttercup.
Saturday night was the final performance of The Princess Bride with the second cast.
Sunday was the cast party, so we've been super busy!

Ooh Princess Bride! How fun. :) I wish our school would do a production of that. Cool videos too- I like the one rider practicing their lassoing.

The kids did a great job adapting it to be a stage play. Thanks for watching my videos.

We have until June 22 for school, but it will be here soon. Love the photos. Our performance of Mulan is coming up soon. You have a some fabulous books listed. Hope you enjoy all that you need to read.

Ooh! Mulan. That would be another good one to put on. Share pictures if you can. Fortunately I don't **have** to read any of the books but I think they'll all be good.

Lol that would be so cool to see heading down your street!
Hello Universe looks good. And I am still on a mission to read The Penderwicks this summer. The Princess Bride!!! My favorite!!!!
Comment #6: Tuesday, June 12, 2018 at 21:50:00
The play was amazing. Both casts did amazing jobs. The Penderwicks are very good as audiobooks. I have the second book on hand now to listen to soon.

I must read welcome to Night Vale!
Comment #8: Tuesday, June 12, 2018 at 21:54:00
It's slow going in parts but still interesting. There's a lot of word play, maybe more so than the podcast.
Comment #9: Monday, June, 11, 2018 at 10:01:50
Firework was amazing. What a great production. I have been keeping track of my reading on Google Sheets for a few years and wish that I had kept track. Too often I see a title and think I might have read the book but certainly can't remember when or if I really did read it. As always you have an intriguing assortment of books. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

I'm not as diligent with my handwritten list as I was when I was younger. I end up having to go back and fill in pages at a go rather than writing each one down as I finish it. Although now I can say I've read something and when I've read it, I still don't / can't recall every book I've read.

Great video of the concert; they sound wonderful.
Comment #12: Tuesday, June 12, 2018 at 21:59:00
Thank you. They worked hard.
Comment #13: Monday, June 11, 2018 at 18:00:14
I love the eels in that photo :). Very terrifying. I hope you have a great week!
Comment #14: Tuesday, June 12, 2018 at 22:00:00
The eels crack me up every single time.
Comment #15: Monday, June 11, 2018 at 19:07:49
A Just Clause and Better off Read are both on my lists to read.
Your daughter has been busy. I love the Princess Bride.
Have a great week!
Comment #16: Tuesday, June 12, 2018 at 22:00:00
My daughter is always busy. Her summer is already nearly completely booked with things to do. I hope you enjoy A Just Clause and Better off Read. The Princess Bride performances were wonderful.
Comment #17: Monday, June, 11, 2018 at 19:35:05
Love those pictures and all of those books!
Comment #18: Tuesday, June 12, 2018 at 22:04:00
Thank you. This week is off to a much slower start.

Thanks and you're welcome.

I just got Surprise Me from my library Overdrive. Looking forward to it. Thanks for visiting my blog.
Comment #22: Tuesday, June 12, 2018 at 22:06:00
Surprise Me starts a little slow but picks up steam and turns out to be a great book. I hope you enjoy it.
Comment #23: Monday, June 11, 2018 at 19:46:27
Looking forward to your review of Night Vale. Hello, Universe looks good too.
Comment #24: Tuesday, June 12, 2018 at 22:07:00
The Night Vale book is slow going for a couple of reasons. First, there's a lot of wordplay in it, so I have to stop and think about what I'm reading. The second is that 's a signed first edition that I'm borrowing from my son, so I don't want to take it out in public with me or eat and read it at the same time, thus limiting my time to read it.
