What We've Been Enjoying This Week..

The 39 Clues Series - I'm on book 8, the kids are all over. It's been tough covering an 11 book series from the library with 6 different readers/listeners with a crazy combo of audio and print!

Watching YouTube videos related to topics that came up in the 39 Clues, like Terra Cotta Army, Amber Room and Catacombs of Paris.

Discovering Music DVD series by Dr. Carol Reynolds (I love how she incorporates art, architecture, history, culture, politics, science, etc. along with LOTS of stories and excellent recordings). Already touched on a few topics from  The 39 Clues here too. :)

Good stuff! 

P.S. An extra motivation for me to finish the series is that the 1st book in the second series, (Cahills vs. Vespers: The Medusa Plot) is waiting for me to read from the Amazon Vine program. Terri's already cruised through that and eager for the next volume (which comes out in December!)
