Fun Friday

My littlest is a grump in the morning... unless it's Friday. Has all the coloring and counting of kindergarten stressed her out to the point she longs for the weekend? Nope. But her kindergarten teacher calls that day Fun Friday, because they get a little treat if they've behaved all week. Don't we all deserve Fun Fridays?

 I knew you'd agree. So I've decided from now on we should celebrate Fun Friday too.

The Today Show had a host of the show Unpoppables on this morning. He brought beautiful balloon art including balloon chairs you can really sit on without popping. How cool is that?

So today, the girls and I made balloon hats. There were squeals of glee and lots of giggles. I think the girls had fun too.

How about you? Did you do anything fun today? Is there something you wish you had done? Comment and let us know.

Falling In Love with Books

Happy Valentine's Day! Celebrate this day of love with me by hopping into the Wayback Machine and remembering a book that made you fall in love with reading. Some people find book love at an early age. Others go half their lives without finding one to adore. So when did it happen for you? Was there a picture book you couldn't live without? Did your palms get sweaty when the Scholastic book order form showed a new James Howe book? Can you remember sitting with your chair scooted back in math class because there was a character in a novel you just couldn't keep your eyes off? Do tell!
