Read Across America Week

Some of our favorites!

Read Across America Poem

~Courtesy of the NEA

You're never too old, too wacky, too wild,

To pick up a book and read with a child.

You're never too busy, too cool, or too hot,

To pick up a book and share what you've got.

In schools and communities,

Let's gather around,

Let's pick up a book,

Let's pass it around.

There are kids all around you,

Kids who will need

Someone to hug,

Someone to read.

Come join us March 2nd

Your own special way

And make this America's

Read to Kids Day.

365 Project

I am going to be participating in the 365 Project. I've committed to posting one picture a day for the next year. Check out the site by clicking here or at other times, you can access the project from the link on the right. I figured that I could kill two birds with one stone by posting the project pictures and then blogging about any events/pictures that didn't quite make the cut for that day--not that I'm going to be blogging every day--come on now, don't be crazy!
My button, "Comment make me happy" is really true. Those who know me, understand that I need to be stroked, encouraged and validated. High maintenance indeed!
Look what I found today.
Guess my hopes for another snow day have been dashed!
I knew this would happen if I bought snow pants!
(and I look really cute in them!)

Does this constitute animal cruelty?
He is so handsome.
He was trying on my shoes this morning...
and I'm talking about Yoohoo.

I know you can't read this, but it is measuring 78 degrees!
Love it.
