  1. I can't believe I forgot Skippyjon Jones! That's the perfect read aloud! How much vacation time do you actually get since it's year round?? Do you enjoy year round schools? I've never met someone who does that! Also, a beach vacation trip sounds FANTASTIC!

  4. Until recently when they came out at Kohl's I think it was I had never heard of the Skippy John Jones books. This girl who is a lover of books was feeling so out of the loop. I am for sure going to be getting my hands on these. I like the idea of a year round school.

  5. I guess for the laundry fairy to fold clothes that means you actually have to do the laundry part first, right? No wonder she keeps skipping over my house! :)
