Friday Favorites

Remember the song "My Favorite Things" from The Sound of Music? Well here are a few of my favorite things. Or actually just two of my favorite things, and just for today. (I'll have another favorite or two by next week!)

The first is an old favorite that I've re-visited this week: History and Literature Pockets by Evan-Moor. These are the two we're using this week:

And here are the happy faces:

My other favorite thing this Friday is this book:

It's already on the sidebar, but I've almost finished reading/devouring it, and it's just too good. If you're adopting; read this book. If you've ever considered adoption; read this book. If you know and love someone who's adopting (and maybe just don't get it!); read this book. And most importantly, if you want to have a deeper, richer grasp of just what it means to be adopted as full sons and heirs of God through Jesus Christ; you might just try reading this book. Can you tell I sorta like it? I have kept looking ahead the whole time I've been reading it because every chapter has been so rich that I can't wait to see what's coming. And I haven't been disappointed yet. (Only one more chapter to go).

And I just remembered one more favorite thing. A sweet friend will be here in a few minutes for a visit, and I'm so glad. (Thanks Sarah!)

I love Friday.


  1. It was great spending time with you! Let's really get together with our families soon.
    Love, Sarah

  2. It was so good to talk with you; I can't get enough of hearing your story, and I can't wait until July 18! I'd love for our families to get together before then.

  3. Susan,

    My friend's husband interviewed this author. You can find the link to the interview on her blog:

  4. Susan, I love accidentally meeting new bloggy adoption friends:) Thanks so much for popping by & saying hi. I love your blog. What agency are you adopting with? I'll start stalking for more updates & pics... 2 of my favorite things:)
    Blessings & congrats on your adoption!!
