Journey from Tweenhood to Teenhood + The Short List

Today...I've been reading + researching books + websites for study topics + curriculum for Boo. He is going to be home schooled this year and Ian will go to jr. high. Big changes (insert HUGE here) for us all.
Orientation is tonight. Mixed emotions for all of us as we trek our way along this journey from "Tweenhood to Teenhood" + beyond.

Cautious trepidation.
Anticipating good things.
Great memories.
Forming new friendships.
Keeping some old.
Building new bonds.
Strengthening others.
Communicating better. (And with different/much different mediums than what I grew up with. Learning a new language (texting).
Keeping an old language ! (Plain ole face-to-face encounters with English-LOL)

Will try to post some pics of the big event "l8r."   ;-)

PS The reason I began this post was actually to create a short list of books I've been reading. Please comment on any recommendations you might be enjoying.
Here's my current "SHORT LIST":

Crazy Love- Francis Chan
Harry Potter The Deathly Hallows - J.K. Rowling (hope to have completely read by Nov.21 the day the movie is out in theaters).
Phantom of the Opera- Gaston Leroux
Life Skills for Kids -Christine M. Field
The Holy Bible (ongoing read)
Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto -Mark Levin

As you can probably imagine now, my nightstand (and my Kindle) is overflowing with good reads!
