I've said this before but your blog entries (and your tweets) make me so excited to have older kids! Especially if they're as adorably hard-working as yours.

And I am the same way with books; it drives Dave crazy. I FORCED myself not to read ahead while reading Harry Potter books, but for most I do it. I'm not sure if you've read "The Hunger Games" but I got it from the library and wasn't sure I could handle it. I needed the spoilers to assure me that I could continue without trauma. If you haven't read them, I do recommend them, FWIW.


I always, ALWAYS read the end of the book after I've read the first few chapters just because the stress of not knowing what's going to happen means I can't even enjoy the book itself. And movies? If I know someone who has seen it before I do I HAVE to know the ending. I just do. It makes me crazy not to know. Weird? Maybe but I can't help it.

So happy that E and L have had such a lovely first grade experience. I really believe that building this foundation of positive experiences with school is so important for the later, harder years.


I agree with A - it's sacrilige to read the end first! I love the suspense and surprise.

What kind of dress did you go with?

Yay for a good first grade year! My first grader is such a hardhead, but I think he had the very best teacher for him this year. I get the thankfulness.


I have a horrible memory so I get confused between the book and show plots... but I do love the books! (Even though I saw the show first.) If you haven't seen True Blood, check it out. I wonder if it's on Netflix?
