Saturday Morning Miscellany

Still haven't finished any books this week, still working on three: Little Women, Crocodile on the Sandbank, and The Joyful Homeschooler. All good.

Saturday Review of Books is up, though, with 89 reviews of books as of this moment. J. Gresham Machen's Christianity and Liberalism caught my eye first thing, which led me to PalmTree Pundit's review, which includes a few links to previous blog posts with must-read quotes from the book. I am particularly fond of this one, as the Seminarian read it to me just recently.

Yesterday we introduced the sick 11 year old boy to MacGyver, via dvds from the library. What fun. The 10 year old girl had a great time too. We were supposed to have a girl weekend while the boy and dad went camping with the scouts. But sickness kept them home. Today she and I are sewing an Easter dress and then will lock him in his room so we can watch Pollyanna. Or maybe she'll prefer more MacGyver.

If MacGyver doesn't inspire a boy's imagination, nothing will. Libraries are great. Where else could you find MacGyver DVDs?
