What a nice weekend we’ve had! I’ve been completely captured by Susan Hill’s A Woman in Black…very creepy and a wonderful read for Carl’s R.I.P. II challenge. I’m almost ready to crawl into bed tonight, listen to the rain on the roof, and finish the last few chapters of the book.
Also, our beautiful new bookcase arrived so we spent the afternoon rearranging furniture in our living room and loading favorite books onto the shelves. The bottom shelf is filled with books for the Grandboy since he can now crawl…and if he follows the family pattern, he’ll soon be pulling books of the shelves.
Tomorrow starts another week with my second graders. Things have settled down a lot in the last 2 weeks, and I’m enjoying being with the younger kids. We’ve almost finished Stuart Little, so I’m trying to decide what our next read aloud will be. So many wonderful books to choose from! Maybe Gooney Bird Greene, by my favorite author for young people, Lois Lowry?
I hope you all had as nice a weekend as we did!
