One of my boys has a birthday coming up this next week and I am trying to decide on a few gifts for him, while I still have time to place an order online. Anyhow, I recently came across a series of books by Dianne Ahern – Adventures with Sister Philomena, Special Agent to the Pope (which includes Lost in Peter’s Tomb, Break-In at the Basilica, Curse of the Coins, and Secrets of Siena) – and was curious if any of you/your children have read them and whether or not you would recommend them to others. They seem to have good ratings on Amazon, but I haven’t seen them mentioned on any of the blogs I read (at least not that I remember), so thought I’d ask all of you.
Also, since he loved the lego sets he was given for Christmas, I think we will get him another one to add to his new collection. I’ve just ordered a LEGO® Bricks & More Building Plate 628 so I can make him a Lego Tray, but I can’t decide on whether to just get him a box of Basic Bricks or another actual set (perhaps the LEGO City Corner (7641) – which is currently way overpriced on Amazon but might be available locally). Any thoughts? For some reason I am completely overwhelmed by all the choices when it comes to legos! 🙂
Thank you all for your help, and Happy Candlemas! I am sure I will be back later with some pictures from this year’s Candlemas Tea. 🙂
