December 21, 2010

This will be my last post for 2010. The girls are off from school and I'm looking forward to spending some time with them away from any screens. And the forecast is for a white Christmas! We're very excited.

Thanks for your many comments on my posts this year. I love to hear from you, even when you completely disagree with me!

It was fun to think and write about our snowy day newspaper, starting a mother-daughter book club (I still haven't formed one, but I'm going to!) and ways to ruin a good book.

You helped me feel better about dropping a dud of a read aloud and still had A LOT to say about kindergarten for kids with summer birthdays and, of course, reading logs.

I'm looking forward to blogging in 2011 — Happy New Year to you!
