the help

I finished Kathryn Stockett's debut bestseller, "The Help" this past week.  It was a good read and it is obvious why this book wound up doing so well for so long.  Interesting characters, lots of tension, good pacing, good writing; the book is just put together really well.

I don't think "The Help" will wind up being a reading list book, unlike "The Secret Life of Bees."  That one should be on reading lists and I think it will be.  

Busy week ahead for all three of my kiddoes. New adventures lie ahead and new friends to make. Newness will abound for them in the next five days.  But today's big event is the high school soccer roster. Said roster is supposed to be posted after noon today.  Let's hope it goes live at 12:01 so I can view it before the girls get home from their morning activities.  We are all on pins and needles and hopeful for our soccer girlies.
