I would recommend these books: The Twits, George's Marvelous Medicine and the Fantastic Mr. Fox all written by Roald Dahl. These are shorter story chapter books he may enjoy. He might also like Gangsta Granny or Billionaire Boy by David Walliams or the How to Train Your Dragon series.
If you're interested in African-American books for boys you might want to look into:
1. The Ziggy and the Black Dinosaurs Clubhouse Mysteries books by Sharon Draper
2. The Julian (and Huey, and Gloria) books by Ann Cameron
I hope this helps!

You are so real - I followed you
Yes, I've had the experience of muscle ache after working out and constantly having to go the loo. I had a good laugh....but in a good way because I understand. I'm trying to lose weight myself. I've lost 50 and still have another 70 to go and its so hard.
Thank you Marion. I'm following your board on pinterest

Good Ideas! Following you now.
Oh, believe me, I've had my fair share of failures too! A lot of times my projects don't turn out exactly the way I pictured them in my head. It's all a learning experience, the trick for me is to have LOW expectations....very low :)
I totally get your frustration with the desk. I'm in the process of building a vanity for our upstairs bathroom and it's not going as easy as planned. I've had to start over three times already!
Love the headboard and end tables! I've never taken on either of those projects so I'm very impressed!
It was epic!
Good tips for moms getting back in shape. You are right that it is really important to find something you love to do for a workout. I used to like to go to the gym by myself and do the weights and cardio but now I don't want to have to think about it, so I go to classes where they do the thinking for me and I just have to follow along. It works for now!
