  1. You’re amazing – teacher, mother, daughter, sister, wife and friend. How you do everything you do is beyond me!!!

  2. I love the idea of posting books read during the week. I might start doing this monthly! I have been looking for a vocabulary study similar to that. I put it on my Amazon wish list! I also put The Lives of Scientists and If You Lived Here on hold at the library. Thanks for the great suggestions!
