Today's Question: What are some of your favorite childhood summer memories?
My Answer: I had to work in the berry fields in the summers starting in first grade, so my favorite part of summer was August when the berry season was over and I got to have fun. Long bike rides to the library and candy store, playing Kick the Can with all the neighborhood kids, stopping for ice cream after hiking the trails around Mount Baker, and racing my brothers' match box cars down the slide. Simple things, but so fun!

TODAY'S BOOK GIVEAWAY
The year is 1968. After spending the first half of summer vacation driving her Italian family crazy with her fake southern accent, 10-year old A.J. finds a soul mate on the other side of the island to divert her attention.
She is intrigued to learn that Danny shares her same burning desire to know God and realizes that few people her age think as deeply as the two of them do.
However, the depth of their newfound faith and friendship is soon tested when Danny's father betrays his wife.
Set in a simpler time, Saving Sailor is a heartwarming tale of how hearts can change and relationships can be restored with God's help.
Very enjoyable book! Good for teens and adults alike. In so many ways reminded me of my childhood and some of the crazy things a family can do. I love AJ's family and their outlook on possessions and enjoying life. Wonderful!
