Sunday Post, Mailbox Monday and It's Monday What Are You Reading? April 3 Edition


Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

So I didn't post any of these memes last week. My son got sick and we've been helping the kids organize all their end of the year school projects. I don't remember having so much homework or so many projects to do when I was growing up. It just seems that our kids are just doing so much more. Every weekend they have homework. When are they supposed to rest and enjoy their childhood? Anyhow, I'm looking forward to those summer months. They can't come soon enough. Hope you're all enjoying spring!


Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Mailbox Monday now has a permanent home on its blog. Link up to share your MM.

Two review books in my mailbox this week:

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a great post to organise yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.

  2. I felt the same way when my little ones were in school. They seemed to never have down time. We had a few good teachers who limited homework to 30 mins a day or gave reading to do. Hope this week is a quiet one and that your child feels better.

    1. In high school students have up to 6 teachers in one day and if all gave them homework, you can just imagine how many hours that amounts to. Some schools are better than others.:-)

  3. I hope your son is feeling better. At this point of the school year I was counting down to the last day of school. I agree there seems to be a lot more project work these days than when I was in school. Have a good week!

    1. He's back to his boisterous self. I'm counting down the days too!

  4. I tend to agree, I think kids have to have time to be kids instead of being little homework machines all the time! Hope your son is feeling better.

    I like that Yellowstone book, I remember when they started reintroducing wolves and I was so happy to see that. I know it's controversial in some quarters but I think it's a good thing.

    Have a nice week!

    1. I learned so much from that children's book about the cycle of nature in general and not just the wolves. I love that about children's non-fiction books.

  5. Hope all of your children are healthy now. I agree too that there has to be a balance for the children between school work and learning through enjoying friends and free time.
    Your new books look good for springtime. The Color of Our Sky sounds particularly interesting. And I like the devotional too. :-)
    Happy Reading!

  6. I have posted all the usual memes but was terrible last week at visiting others. For every project a student does, teachers have to find time to assess them. My week was filled with grading and report cards. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

    1. I know teachers work very hard. I have worked in the school system and I have seen how dedicated some teachers are and I have respect for their work. Some teachers, on the other, should change professions. My son had a 4th grade teacher who could not teach math. When my son pointed out on a math test once that several of his answers were correct, she got angry and refused to change his mark. She berated him and he lost his confidence that year. She took a disliking to him and my son had severe migraines that year. We subsequently learned that parents had tried to pull their kids out of her class and when the administration refused, they changed school. We had to talk our kid through that whole year and helped him to learn how to cope with difficult people.

  9. That much homework is hard. Some of my kids have tons and some of them barely have any. I wish there was a happy medium.
