Sacred Heart School Book Drop

We were excited to share our love of reading with Sacred Heart School yesterday!

Grades Kindergarten thru 3rd Grade welcomed us into their classrooms. We talked about what poetry is and read a few of the kid poems aloud from The Yeti in My Freezer.

Read Aloud

At the end of our visit, we surprised the students by giving them their very own copy of the book…donating 80 books in all to include the teachers’ classrooms.

Kids Poems

We hope the students and staff share the book with others and enjoy it for years to come.

Thank you Sacred Heart!

Best Baby Shower Gift

Our oldest turns 14 in six weeks. I don’t pretend to understand how that happened!

The months leading up to his birth were full of doctor appointments, prenatal classes, reading every book about expecting a baby, painting the nursery, agonizing over the perfect name and the list goes on and on and on.

Time was also spent researching what to include on our baby registry. Friends and family threw several baby showers for us and the registry helped them know which gifts would help out the most.

Little did we know how many essential items were needed to get through the first year of baby’s life. The baby sleepers, bottles, breast pump, burp cloths, baby monitor, diapers, wipes (don’t waste your money on the wipe warmer!), stroller, car seat and…

BOOKS! You guessed it. The best baby shower gift we received were books. (more…)
