My mom is on vacation for the next eight days. She says that we might go outside or some other adventures. It all depends on the weather, because Mom is a bit of a wimp about really hot temperatures. She would much rather sit inside with the air conditioning then go out in the heat!
Things have been pretty calm around here lately. Wednesday was the first nice, sunny day that Wisconsin had to offer in quite some time. I know that it has to rain for the flowers and plants to grow, but I don’t always like cloudy days. Mom says that it is probably long stretches of cloudy days that I don’t like. I don’t think I could live in a place like Finland where my friends at Children of Arotox live. Sometimes, they only get a few hours of sunlight—and then that’s not even very bright sunlight! But I guess they’re used to it. Right now, it seems to be spring or early summer and they’ve got lots of beautiful flowers!
Caleb, Milton, and I have been sitting on the couch with Mom this afternoon. We’re watching TV while Mom reads her book. It’s called the Great Railroad Bazaar and it is by a gentlemen named Paul Theroux. I usually love books on trains, but this one is more about the people that he meets on the trains then the actual trains themselves. We love to read around here. My favorite books are the mouse books by Kevin Henkes. He wrote books like Owen, Wemberly Worried, and Lilly and the Purple Plastic Purse.
