P365 – Day 29 (J’s Books)

Joshua 1:8

Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.

Well, these books aren’t exactly the Book of Law – okay, none of them come anywhere close to being the Book of Law but they are ones that Joshua is reading day and night.

He has quite a stack going of “current books” – some for school, others for pleasure. I should also note that, to his credit, Joshua reads 2 or 3 chapters of the Bible a day.

six books

As Rachel says, “Only six, Joshua? I’m disappointed in you.” What would (cousin) Rebecca say?? Let’s ask her. Rebecca, how many books are you in the middle of right now? Do post a comment and tell us.

Rachel and I had fun posing Joshua with his latest collection of books.


What book shall I pick?


Bwahahah – These books are mine, all mine!


And I’m going to read them all right now!

Joshua and Tim convinced me to join them in a game of Thurn and Taxis. We started it right before dinner and picked up the game after dinner was over. It is not a very complicated game and focuses more on individual building of mail lines rather than competing against the other players. As it so happens, I beat them both. I guess I managed to figure out the rules enough to come out victorious. Fun.

Shall we play again, boys? Do you think you can beat me next time?

“Beginners luck, Mom!” Says Joshua. Hmmm. We’ll see. I happen to recall the winner from Saturday’s Puerto Rico game.

Oh yes, that would be me … again.

Side note: Check out Carl’s blog for an amazing sunset picture taken in Olympia near the airport. Truly spectacular.

  1. You wanted me to comment…
    Glad to see that Joshua is still plowing through the Fellowship of the Ring. Those all look like good books. Tell Joshua to put on some speed and finish them. Every time I turn around I find a new realm of books that needs exploring. I’m glad to have Joshua to join me in that exploration…
    Having just finished another Sabatini book this morning, I am only reading 3 books at present, one of which I should finish today or tomorrow. I try to avoid reading too many books at once, though I have no scruples about laying a book aside in order to re-read an old favorite.

  2. What a blessing that Kathy is able to provide such a positive example of sportsmanship and humility; truly, we are all inspired. Now if only she could occasionally win in Feed the Kitty, we would really be impressed. :)

  3. How old is Rebecca? I know she’s Tim’s brother Mark’s child, but don’t recall her age. What fun to have true readers in the family!!

    I like you to win, sweet Niece.

    Love you Edgrens. AK

  4. Give me time, I’m sure I can conquer Feed the Kitty one of these days. Ha! I’m just excited that we still have a few more unopened games from Christmas. What will we play with Mamie and Grandad when they come next week????
