“So I’m Packing My Bags for the Misty Mountains, Where the Spirits Go”

I mentioned that Maxwell has fallen in love with The Hobbit.

Apparently he’s now made the connection that the ring Bilbo finds in The Hobbit is the same one that’s in Lord of the Rings, and he wants to know what’s up with that.

He’s such a good boy.

    The girls are building the Lego Hobbit Hole, as I read this.

    Didn’t you say you were in middle school when you read the LOTR trilogy? Or am I imagining that? Piper’s interested, and I’m wondering if she’s too young — as in, so much would go over her head. (She’s in third grade; I’m thinking she should wait.)

    Bilbo to giant eagle, “alrighty, now head to Mt. Doom and let’s save these nice people 70 yrs of misery!”

    But what fun would that be?

    Mom, :)

    Jules, I read LotR when I was in fifth grade. I read a LOT of my enduring favorite books when I was in fifth grade.

    Kevin, Thank goodness YOU didn’t write LotR.

    Cheri, It is exciting to think we might have another fantasy fan running around. The world could use some more of them.
