i apologize for my brief absence; i was single-parenting-it again this week, and having sole responsibility for the welfare and general alive-ness of our children always ends up a wee bit emotionally taxing. those of you who do this on a regular basis have been elevated to legendary status in my book.
thankfully, hubby is back, but today has still been crazy-busy, so this shall just be a brief pop-in post.
thursday brought the happy chance to photograph these two dapper fellows.
thanks, guys--you two are naturals in front of the camera.
and also, i owe y'all july's booklist...
SPECIALS (Scott Westerfield)
EXTRAS (Scott Westerfield)
IF A TREE FALLS AT LUNCH PERIOD (Gennifer Choldenko)
KIRA-KIRA (Cynthia Kadohata)

rennison's books are always dear to my heart with their unexpected, irreverent humor, but anderson's OCTAVIAN NOTHING took the trophy this time 'round. poetic, honest, disquieting...a must read.
