Where am I??

I just posted my first Thursday Thirteen....and it's Friday. It was up like 20 minutes before I realized what day it is :)

I guess I am just in a holiday daze..Christmas shopping is not done. The kids school books should be half way done..they are not. I'm panicking. MUST. FINISH.BOOKS. I don't know why I worry about the little things, I guess that's just who I am. The kids are doing so well with their school work this year...

Let me take a moment to brag on my oldest. Jackson, barely 9 years old has FINALLY decided he loves to read. He reads at least one novel a week. So far this school year he has read: Moby Dick, Treasure Island, Swiss Family Robinson, 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, Black Beauty, The Call of the Wild, Great Expectations, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, and many more.. he is like a little sponge. He amazes me more and more everyday.

And can this kid memorize? He has a new Sunday School teacher. A young man..that teaches the young boys sunday school. He plays games and has contests for prizes. Jackson recited ALL of Psalm 1, and ALL of Psalm 8...for this weeks class. This just amazes me because I can barely memorize 1 verse let alone an entire chapter. WOW.

That is awesome! I loved to read as a kid- those are wonderful books to be reading, too. By the way- I never know what day it is! I thought today was Thursday, too! I'll check out your Thursday 13 anyway!

My oldest just turned 9 too and has also decided this year he likes to read. Must be something about the age!! It makes me really happy too that he likes to read.

And suddenly your son is better read than I am! :) I somehow skipped a lot of classics. I read different classics while pursing my English degree, but none of those.
