42.  Unremembered by Jessica Brody
43.  In Honor by Jessi Kirby
44.  Tiger's Promise by Colleen Houck  (x3 - Kim, Brittin and Kassie)

"Postcards From Around The World" ... CHECK!

Postcards from different countries.  Fun!  Great!  Wait ... do we know anyone from different countries?!?!  haha  The task was set and we were up for the challenge.  We brainstormed who we could possibly get to send us postcards.  I just have to say without our amazing Mom ... we could not have pulled this off.  She went posting on Facebook and the word was spread to our family and friends.  We got SOOOO many amazing postcards.  Just take a look.  Thanks SOOOOOO much to everyone who sent them!!!  They were so much fun to get in the mail!  Definitely a "Dream Come True"!  One more item checked off.  Now for the next task!

"Try Sushi" ... CHECK!

   On February 2nd, our family decided to check "Eat Sushi" off of our bucket list. To be honest, I was not excited about this item on the bucket list. I am not a dare devil and I usually do not like trying to eat new things. However, the item was voted on the list so we had to do it. We had no idea where to get sushi, so we asked around on Facebook. We made a status and our friends commented their favorite sushi spots.After getting tons of responses, we decided to go with the majority, That night we ate at The Sushi.

   When we were seated at the table, we were all ready to try at least some sushi and decide if sushi was for us. During the meal we laughed so much as we  tried new dishes and discussed them with one another. Many jokes were shared and it was just a fun night out with each other.

   The majority of the family loved sushi. But to be honest, I was not a fan from probably the beginning, Even though I was not in agreement with my family about the tastiness of sushi, I would not have taken that item off of the list. It was a good thing to try something new and to just have a good time hanging out with the family. It is always a fun time when the family is together, no matter what crazy stuff we are doing. I love increasing the bond with my family because "Friends come and go, but family is always there."

On Our Way To 100 Books

One of our "Dreams Come True" goals is to read 100 books collectively as a family.  This is going to be a challenge but we think we can do it.  Between all of us, that means we all need to read an average of 12.5 books!  However, we all know that we have some in the family that won't read that many.  Time to kick it into gear and get the reading going!  The rest of us will just have to cover the others.

Eight days in and we are doing good!  We already have 8 books down!  Here they are:

1.  Destined For Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon (x3 - Kim, Brittin and Kassie)
2.  Paranoia by J.R. Johansson
3.  Royally Lost by Angie Stanton
4.  Nil by Lynne Matson (x2 - Kim and Brittin)
5.  Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler
