We were in Chattanooga on the Fourth of July, spending most of the day with my daughter, celebrating her birthday a week early. It was proclaimed Caroline Day.
The weather was absolutely perfect — sunny, breezy, and much cooler than the sauna we left in southwest Georgia:
We ended the day with my son and daughter-in-law and their friends:
When I was in middle school and high school, we had assigned reading every summer. I usually didn’t mind that so much because I loved to read even then. I read the assigned books and then some. And when I was homeschooling Will and Caroline, I was busy every summer reading serious stuff in preparation for the coming school year. This summer, in lieu of an actual vacation of lying by a pool at a beachside resort, I’ve been reading fiction — nothing particularly noteworthy, but relaxing and not at all taxing to my brain.
I’ve got a few more fiction titles in the queue, and then there’s some more serious non-fiction I’d like to tackle.
What are you reading this summer?
