Moving/OBX pictures and a few reviews

BOO! He, he.. Yes, it is finally me! After not writing for almost a month, I AM BACK!!!!!!!!! So, I took that picture up there on our way to the OBX, about 2 weeks ago. I think I am going to to change my picture over there in the 'about me' thingy. This year, at the OBX Benjamin swam for the first time! YAY BANJAMIN!!!!! He looked really cute in his swim vest that Tia Shannon gave him. As you can most likely tell from the picture, he LOVED swimming! unhappy smileys
Yep... That's my Mom..... Can you tell we don't play put-put much?!?!?!





And that's my Dad. When we took this picture, we were all at our new home, taking a break from unpacking. We saw a butterfly and went to see if we could catch it. Well, it, uh, kinda caught my dad......... He, he....?




Well, if you want to know more about how the move was or the OBX, you should go to my Mom's blog ( http://www.galyeanbattalion.blogspot.com/ ).




OH! Joseph now has a blog. It is http://www.indianajoe1.blogspot.com/ . It is pretty cool.




NOW THE REVIEWS




These are some books that I enjoyed:




BEYOND THE REFLECTIONS EDGE


BY BRYAN DAVIS




This book was GREAT! When Nathen Shepard's parents are murdered, his world turns upside-down. He has to go to a "safe-house" before the murderer gets him too. Then he discovers a mirror them shows different realms and a camera that takes pictures of things that aren't really there. He also finds out that his parents might not really be dead! I'm not going to let anything thing else out though, so if you want to the answers to these questions, you will have to read the book!!!!!!

Billy Bannister has always had a good life. But, then he discovers a dark family secret that his Dad has tried to keep hidden from him. At school he meets a girl, Bonnie Silver, who has a disturbing secret. And to top it all off, the Principal is out to get Billy's dad. I really liked the book!



The Candlestone

(Dragons in our MIdst Series)

By Bryan Davis


When Bonnie's dad suddenly shows up and tries to take her away from her new found friends, she has a choice to make. Should she try to stay here with her friends and possibly taken away by force, or should she just go and leave it be? And, sense saying anything else will give the rest of the story away, I won't say anything else! Well, I will say that this book is better than I have made it sound! mad smileys
