I also broke down and bought two books this week. I have been doing a great job of not purchasing books, but somehow had a weak moment - or two- this week. Heaven is for Real has been receiving a ton of buzz and my mother-in-law read and enjoyed it. Normally we don't have the same taste in books at all, so it will be interesting to read this one. And Sweet Valley Confidential by Francine Pascal is such a blast from my past. I still have books #1-#88 in a Rubbermaid box somewhere. I saved my precious money when I was in sixth-eighth grades to buy these books. Sadly, I would save and buy one and it would last me all of an hour or two. There definitely wasn't much to the books. Even though I have read less than stellar reviews on this one, I can't help but want to find out what happened to Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield and their friends.
This week I am back to teaching a normal schedule. Last week we administered the ITBS tests at our building. I still need to type my lesson plans, but at least have in my mind what I am planning to do. Supper tonight is a recipe I took from Janssen at Everyday Reading - the Sweet Potato Foil Taco Packets. We had those a few weeks ago and they were fabulous!
