BOOKS

Baker Family Adventures Series

By C. R. Hedgcock


 
These books are AWESOME!!! On the back of the book it says, "The Baker Family Adventures series follows the exciting lives of Mr. and Mrs. Baker and their four children: responsible Phil, sensible Abby, daring Andy, and inquisitive Tom. The Bakers are a Christian homeschooling family who, in their desire to help others, frequently find themselves in dangerous situations where they must grow in courage and learn important lessons of godliness."

These books are a mystery adventure series. There are 4 books but I have not read the 4th yet. :)  Did I mention that these books are awesome? ;) I mean, were else can you find a Christian Home-school mystery adventure series! By the way, They do not cut down on the action ether! The books in the series are, Summer of SuspensePeril on Providence IslandThe Treacherous Trail, and Riddle of the Ruby Ring (which I have not read.)

Have you heard of this series?

Awk and Awe in a fedora

Howdy! How have you guys been? :) I decided to try an awkward and awesome post this time! I hope you like it! :D


AWKWARD
Getting more braces, I'm sure that lady punched me in the jaw. Then, she put barbwire in my mouth. Well, at lest it felt like that. :)
The quote, "I would like to think that I will die an heroic death but it's more likely that I'll trip over my dog and choke on spoonful of frosting." : P

Getting songs stuck in my head SO easily! Right now I have  The Andrew Sisters "Don't sit under the apple tree" and The Andrews Sisters "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy Of Company B". I really like the songs, but they are hard to get out of my head!! :D


AWESOME
Being saved! It's so wonderful being with my Lord every day!
The snow! (Can you tell I'm trying to be thankful? ;) )
Being alive, so many people don't get to be!
 Having wonderful, Christ like parents! :D
