Reading, visiting, reading, visiting . . .

We got back into town a few hours ago. The kids are in their bedrooms and I'm about to try and tackle the last half of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

I bought it Saturday morning and have been reading it off and on between talks with my cousins from Texas and visiting with my family, nieces, and nephew while travelling in Owensboro, Kentucky.

So far, HP & the DH is far different than the previous six, significantly different in tone, pacing, structure, and so many other things. It is great fun to read and I am waiting, waiting, waiting to see how it will all end. I've been presented with many surprises to this point and can't say that I can really guess properly how everything will finally end. I have my suspicions, but it's nothing more than speculation!

In other news, today is Sarah's 7th birthday. I can't express how proud and in love I am with my oldest daughter. She's a wonderful kid and I am honored to be her dad. My family had a nice little party for her last night and it's my task this week to finalize the details of her party, which will occur next Saturday.

Keep you eyes here for more descriptions on how it goes once it's all done next weekend. (Here's hoping I manage to pull it properly together!)
