Looking For a Secular Florida Umbrella School?

Monday, July 18, 2005


To prevent squabbles, and mostly to prevent anyone from swiping the book before I'm done, we've agreed to postpone the reading of The Yearling ("Four chapters, Mom, and so far, no baby deer...!") and replace it with Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

Tonight I was on auto-pilot, working to reread the first 100+ pages to get everyone caught up.

I must say it's a nice change from the last few read-alouds where everybody wiggled and squirmed and interrupted for the first several minutes. Tonight they settled down immediately with nary a peep.
