Banner Week

We had two monumental events in the Moody household this week:
1) Emma's braces are off!
2) Aidan finished reading the 7th Harry Potter book, accomplishing the challenge set before him in July (to read the entire series). I am now looking for the cheapest Lego's Imperial Star Destroyer on ebay, as his reward. He's now taken up the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I've created a monster!

oh no, another reading Moody monster, horrors! But congrats all around. Does Emma get a prize too? Oh, straight teeth...

Hey Barbie, I think you would enjoy this Orson Scott Card 'Women of Genesis' series I'm reading. Good stuff.

Thanks Marti
I read Ender's Shadow a few months back because Ender's Game wasn't available. Interesting...
Is Women of Genesis in the same vein?

Oh, and Emma did get a special something-a hoodie she's been eying for sometime.

Women of Genesis =does= read like a lot of his science fiction - lots of dialog / character development. Some readers criticize it because the characters are too modern, don't act / think so much like ancient middle-easterners probably did. But makes a good. red.

Glad Emma got her hoodie. I remember getting my braces off - twice. They went crooked again the first time and I had to start over. Life is so unfair. (So unfair that Emma and I could both live in a time, place, and socioeconomic bracket to have the luxury of getting our teeth straightened).
