What We’re Reading
Here is a quick peek at the books on our nightstands right now:
Delaney (age 8): Waiting for the Magic by Patricia MacLachlan (this one is funny, sensitive, and just delightful) and Horse Diaries #5: Golden Sun by Whitney Sanderson (as Delaney says, books about horses are awesome!)
What books are in your kids’ hands right now?
