My three children will be home with me all summer. We’re looking forward to swim lessons, overnight family camp, and a new week of science and engineering camp taught by a friend and me. I'm also going to a writing conference for a week. And lots of relaxing and down time. I don't look forward to every bit of summer though.
Please keep reading for a bit of an announcement, too!

My sister gave me an early birthday present. It’s called Triggers: Exchanging Parents' Angry Reactions for Gentle Biblical Responses (affiliate link). I’m less than ten chapters (of thirty-one) into the book, but I am amazed at how it speaks to my heart. When I dreamed of having children, I had no idea I would act the way I do: angrily. If you yell and complain more than you ever expected, you might like the book, too. One warning: It is written for a Christian audience, as I'm sure you could guess from the title, so it may not be for every mom out there. I appreciate every word in it. HIGHLY recommend. Thank you, Shonda, for recommending it.
I’m reading one chapter a day. It’s already affecting me in surprising ways, so I’m sharing it with you now.
Maybe you have noticed I no longer blog here at This Simple Home or Little House Companion often. Feel free to get these infrequent blog posts right in your inbox so you don't miss a post. I've been busy writing, just not on the blogs. Also, if you are interested, I now have an author Facebook page to celebrate that my book INSECTS AS PRODUCERS (Rourke Educational Media) is available for preorder on Amazon (affiliate link) along with a newsletter.
