Fallen By Lauren Kate

Fallen (Fallen, #1)  I give this book 3 stars.
 What I liked
  1. It was a fast read
  2. It had good supporting characters
  3. Overall story
What I didn't like
  1. Similarities to these two books 
 Twilight (Twilight, #1)  Obsidian (Lux, #1) 
  Girls meets guy who is the model of perfection. The guy is a jerk but, he has a perfectly good reason for it. The girl ignores all insults, bad behavior and obsesses over guy. Something tragic happens and guys confesses his undying love from the beginning.

2. Foul Language
3. Teenage drinking

Busy Week

My week started on Sunday a run. My children thought it would be fun. Something we could all do together.
Bloomsday is 12 Kilometers(7.46 Miles).  There were over 51,000 people competing. There are runners, walkers, wheelchairs and people pushing strollers. My family ran it. I decided to walk. I am not in the best shape. I'm working on it though. My time 2:19. I finished faster than I expected and I was only stiff the next morning. I wasn't in pain. It was nice that the little exercise I have been getting helped.

On Tuesday I left with one of my children to outdoor school. I got to stay in a cabin with one other adult and 12 preteen girls.We went to different classes. There was survival class, plant power, learning about trees, reading maps, learning the compass, we dissected salmon, we also took apart owl pellets.

Everything slows down for me after this week.
