After spending a night at the cabin with Jamie, I got the idea to read a non-picture book to the kids when I put them to bed each night. It's become a ritual now (thanks Jamie!) and we've made it through several books: The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane; Despereaux; The Wonderful Wizard of Oz; The Marvelous Land of Oz; and Ozma of Oz. We'll be starting the next Oz book tomorrow night. It's cool to think these books are over 100 years old, and kids still love them.
I was in a bad mood today. Still am.
