As far as North! or be Eaten is concerned, I wish we would have read the first book in the series first. However, it was pretty easy to jump into the story and follow along. There were many parts where we laughed out loud (sometime just at me trying to pronounce the names of people, places and animals in the book). It definitely redeemed itself in the last 15 chapters as everything tied up and came to a close. I would say if you have a child in the 8-14 age range, this is definitely a book you should look into. It was clean, funny, family-oriented, overall great :)

Isaiah is leaving the Andersen home today. It's bittersweet. We're super sad for us because he has become a part of our family. However, he's going to stay with family and be with his youngest siblings and we're excited for that. We've known for a couple of weeks that this day was coming and so we've done our best to prepare our hearts for it. I'm sure the days to come will show that this is easier said than done :) I've been thinking about how different our lives would be if Isaiah had never come to our house and so this is probably more therapeutic for me than interesting to you but either way, here it is.
