Every Saturday I go to my local public library and pick up a large assortment of books. Then I come home and decide which books I'll bring to school; which books I'll save for the following week; or which books I don't even want to read. When I feel like doing some "shopping" for books, I'll go on the inter-library loan site and order a bunch of books I've seen on other blogs. Right now I have the newest Caldecott winning book and all the Honor books.

Today I was texting my colleague who was out sick and missed our field trip to the Commonwealth Museum - the state museum of Massachusetts. It was a very educational trip. The oldest bowling ball in the USA is in their archives!
I just started reading this amazing book:
I'm just in awe of Jodi Picoult and how she thinks up these amazing stories to write.
I love how it's light out until a little after five o'clock ~ that extra daylight makes me so hopeful and happy!
