Finished another book - this one quickly because it was an easy read. Not anything close to my usual genre but still thoroughly enjoyable. This little girl (the main character Sylvia) will remain in my thoughts for weeks I'm sure.

Abigail asked for an International theme for her birthday party. My first reaction was 'International - of course she wants International, my little bookworm/smarty-pants'. My second reaction was 'Oh wow, how does one do International?' and my third reaction was 'this is going to be so fun!' once I had Googled a bunch of ideas (try 'Around the World' party as opposed to the word 'International').
In fact, I bit off a little more than I could chew and got overly stressed with the details. The day of the party I am usually a dragon, ha!
|the invitations were passports|
|Grandma and Morgan came in for it|
|couldn't keep Morgan out of the pool the whole weekend|
|suitcases for the kids to keep their party crafts & favours in|
|a craft to make for each continent|
|lunch for the kids was an 'in-flight meal'|
|fun for parents and kids alike|
|opening the gift she's waited a year for: a FISHTANK!|

Just finished this book and I am so happy to have been introduced to this outstanding writer. Unknowingly, I started with his third book. The world has long been singing his praises over 'The Kite Runner' and 'A Thousand Splendid Suns' but I must've been under a rock for all that. I'm not sure how I heard about 'And The Mountains Echoed' but I can't say enough about it - GREAT read! And now I will rush straight to read his other two.
