A new Friday Five

It's been quite awhile since I've done a Friday Five and I got some inspiration from my son's Thursday folder to do one. At my son's school they send a folder home on Thursday's to give us any papers to bring home and also if there's anything we need to sign and return the next day-etc. Anyways yesterday's folder had a writing portfolio: 

I think it's so cute to see his drawings and his writing of course he can't quite spell everything correctly yet -some things we have to ask- what does that say? I guess they mostly write about things they have done/ places they've been. And - here's 5 things from the writing portfolio:
I went to the zoo
 I got ice cream


I went to go shopping

 I play Skylanders

 I went to play soccer
Sorry if the pics and descriptions are not in a uniformed place it was giving me problems -But, there you have the Friday Five - Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Reviewing The Time Keeper

Finishing up the Time Keeper with the RHOK 

From Chapter 21 'til the end of the book... As I mentioned before I somewhat could relate to Sarah being not the most popular teen aged girl and being so excited that a boy was interested in her -only to have a broken heart in the end. I remember a piece of advice that we'll probably all experience a broken heart- probably more than once and will probably cause a few broken hearts along the way as well -just how it works out sometimes- and it takes time to recover. Unfortunately Sarah did not give time to heal as she felt ready to give up on time itself. It's true sometimes we feel to the world we are nothing but one person but, to one person we may be the world. I enjoyed how towards the end of the book the characters -Dor, Sarah,& Victor, got all mingled together. And luckily the book did end in a happily ever after kind of way - maybe somewhat of a stretch -But, we all like happy endings don't we ;)
Overall I enjoyed the book- an interesting take on time and father time-makes you reflect on such things. And it does remind me of that saying- yesterday is the past, tomorrow is the future, and today is a gift -that's why it's called the present.
See ya next time around!
