In My Mailbox (23)

In My Mailbox is a meme where we showcase books received during the week. It is hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren

This is 2 weeks worth of books. I tried to post my IMM last weekend, but Blogger was not cooperating. 

I’ve started receiving more children’s books for review, which is awesome. So expect to see a few more books reviewed by myself and my kids on the blog. Also I’m horribly behind on reviews. The last two weeks were chaos. We had our typical activities (ballet, tap, & boy scouts). Add a sick child into the mix, plus numerous doctor’s appointments for me because of a possible thyroid issue. Craziness! Everyone is healthy now, and it looks like the problem with my thyroid is most likely just a harmless cyst. Still waiting on one more test’s results, but the doctor felt confident enough to  predict it would be normal as well. So apologies for my erratic posting schedule. Things should be back to normal this week :)
