Alright. Hi! How’s it going?
Truth be told – this week we TOTALLY FAILED at ‘getting back into the groove’ I hoped to get into. (IE: Reading way more, doing morning time, chores, etc.)
Umm… what was I thinking?
Why am I even attempting to get into any sort of groove the first week of July?
Our life this week can be summed up in two words – PURE SUMMER. We were living the sunshine life this week, friends – and it was lovely. And exhausting! Come to think of it, we’ve been living this for the past 2 and a half weeks!
We had our good (kid) friends with us almost every day, spent 5 days (I think?) at various pools, and had company most of the week. So, the reading I wanted to achieve didn’t exactly happen. But a lot of other fun stuff DID happen, so I rest in that.
We did, however, get a couple great books in and reminded ourselves of Africa’s location on the map, and the location of the countries within Africa.
We have actually spent a TON of time over the past many years reading books from and about Africa, African people, and African culture. I thought I’d share some of our favorites from this week and also a few of our favorite past reads. Some are mentioned in Give Your Child the World by Jamie C. Martin, some are not. I will specify below.
