A Friday ritual.

A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week.

A simple, special, extraordinary moment.

Yay! Just received Ah Lo’s first published book of poems! This is a year-long project and i am totally ecstatic to see the end result. These are poems he was written since third grade. From writing to illustrating, page layout to cover design, he took charge of the entire project. I am so proud of this not-so-little little guy.Screen Shot 2017-07-13 at 1.38.52 PMI am putting this up for sale, not to make money (the cost to print this book exceeds the sale price). I am selling this book to family and friends just to encourage him to continue to write (since he gets to keep the proceeds).

IMG_8667Woohoo! We got another one down!

Taking a look at what’s on our bookshelves these days:

Dai Bee is taking a break from Sherlock Holmes books and moving on to reading a new authors – Clive Cussler and Joshua Cohen. He can read (or re-read) John Grisham’s books any day.

Ah Lo finished all The Unwanted series by Lisa McMann and a few on the side. He received Mike Mullen’s “Ashfall” as a gift from his ‘secret valentine buddy. He will be reading it, if not, his brother will grab it and re-read it.

Luckily, we made a quick stop to the library few days ago. Today, it was pouring all day long and it was the perfect time to cuddle in bed and read. Like they say:

Checking out the books the boys are reading now or read in the past weeks. Obviously Dai Bee is in the Michael Crichton mode.

Ah Lo highly recommend the Fourth Stall series. He’s hooked on it I think he finished the series in a week or so. It’s great for those who enjoy investigating crimes at the school level .

Books the boys are reading at the moment. This year, Dai Bee’s school extended the homeroom time from 10 mins to 15 mins. This allows every student in school read for (at least) 10 minutes each day. What a great idea!   Dai Bee read and just finished John Steinbeck’s “The Grapes of Wrath.”

Ah Lo is on the Hunger Games series these days. He just started the first book.

Dai Bee are seriously into Tom Clancy’s series lately. He’s gone through all these books and his favorite is the Jack Ryan, Jr. series. He did learn a thing or two about the spy world, CIA, history and even current events after reading those books. He checked out most, if not all, Tom Clancy’s books from the public library. Yesterday, he told us the last time he checked out a Tom Clancy’s book, a librarian told him he should get more control of his library card and not to let his parents (us) use them to check out books (assuming the adults are reading the Tom Clancy’s series). Dai Bee thought that was funny. Little does the librarian know. To all fairness, these books are not meant to be read by kid his age. He’s onto Robin Cook’s series now (books about bio tech world).

For Ah Lo, he’s hooked on to Angie Sage’s series. He’s on his third book now – Physik. It’s great when the boys find a good book, they are sucked into it entirely.
