Our celebration. We, our two daughters, 2 sons in law and 2 grandsons had a wonderful party, along with other friends and family for my dear hubby's 80th birthday. It was a most wonderful evening. Took place Oct. 14th.

This may sound minor, but to me it's major.

Daughter is reading to fulfill a reading log assignment in English, a subject she hates. Also hates reading in general.

For the past 60 minutes she has been immersed in "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn", which I suggested, with nary a complaint.

Can I tell you how much this former English major is smiling right now?

I'm just happy all kids are healthy and doing well. Thank G-d for that.

Oh Mudbug, I hear you! There is nothing more wonderful to a reader than to see their kid reading (and enjoying!) books. Hallelujah!

You deserve all of that praise and then some crewsk. You are a sweet and wonderful person here, and I can only assume you are wonderful to the kids too. Way to go!

Today, was such a fun day at our school. Teachers and students got to dress up as their favorite book character and march on the school parade! Four of my students dressed up: one was an angel, a US President in a suit (heehee), Mickey Mouse and Esmeraldo from Hunchback of Notre Dame. I was Esmeralda as well. I'll post some pictures soon. That started the day off right and the kids had fun for the rest of their half day.

Later, we had our Thanksgiving celebration with all the teachers and administrators. Everything was so delicious and we got to relax a bit.
