I wrote this post more than 6 months ago, and can’t remember why I didn’t publish it. My friend My Lilbookworm reminded me of it when she did a book review here. Please do read it for more information on the book! ************************************************* A few days after she turned one, Scout started taking several steps,… Continue reading First Steps
How lovely is the weather currently? We are enjoying giving our fans and air conditioners a break.
