I am officially back from BYU Women’s Conference–as in, back home, back into everyday life, and (finally) back on here! (That was supposed to happen on Sunday, but…oops.) I had an exceptionally wonderful time this year, and I have to thank the people who made it possible–my amazing parents who stayed at my house and helped tend my kiddos, my generous introverted hubby who had far more time with people than usual, and my mother- and sister-in-law who are a delight to stay with, play with, and be with. I am blessed.
Speaking of being a delight, by the way, you really ought to read Hippopotamister. It’s a junior graphic novel, and it’s a delightful read. Since the zoo is rundown and lacking in visitors, Hippo’s friend Red Panda helps him get a job in the outside world. When the first day doesn’t go quite as planned, they get another job…and another job…and another; ultimately, both animals find work that fits them well. The illustrations are fabulous (my personal favorite might be the friends’ stint as hair stylists) and the story appealing–don’t miss this one!
