Did you know the Audio Book of Lemony Snickett books is by Tim Curry. They are absolutely amazing. We listened to them by candlelight. The kids couldn't wait till the end of our day when we listened to them. I have yet to find another book that good.

We've tried to check them out from the library but the first disc is always scratched and won't play for us so I just read them from the books.

That does sound like fun though.

One of the things I am looking forward to next school year is the Revolutionary War!
