A World without walls
everyday life while homeschooling overseas
For a few days now, Devin's been complaining about this nasty "dirty diaper" smell that's been inside the car. It really has been gross. I kept chalking it up to either the fact that our car is super dirty (who has time to clean the car, really?) or that the spot where Peter threw up on our trip to Madaba a few weeks ago never quite cleared up.
Today, though, it was extra bad. I noticed on the way home that the smell got much worse with the air on. That made me think about all those cats wandering around the area (I think you know where I'm headed now)--and how every time we park the car, lots of cats come running to lie down near the nice warm engine. What if a cat didn't quite get out before we started going, got caught, and died? We could have a rotting carcass in our car!!
So, we lifted the hood:
Yep. That's exactly what we had. Disgusting. Poor little guy. He was just trying to get warm. I heard some statistic from someone about how a million cats die in Jordan every year during the winter because of the cold. Maybe it's not because of the cold, though. Maybe they just get a little stuck. :/ So sad.

I like that the plot twists and turns a lot...and it makes you think. However, I don't appreciate Dan Brown's endings in his books. I find the endings incongruent with the rest of his stories--why make it a romance for the last chapter...
I loved this book. I'm a sucker for fairy tales/fantasy. This was so well written! I can't wait to read all the rest of her books!
I'm reading this one again. I liked it the first time I read it. I'm still liking it for the second time around. I like all of Shannon Hales' books. **Still lots of fun the second time around! I do like this book for a comfortable...
