Do You “See” a Book as You Read? Let’s Discuss!

Do You “See” a Book as You Read? Let’s Discuss!

A couple of weeks ago, I was away from home for a few days while at my son’s State meet for Special Olympics snowshoeing (you can see a video of him here if you’re curious what that is). On the second morning, I found myself missing snuggles from my pup, Digit. He tends to be very needy in the mornings, which means that he gives me very forceful snuggles, hoping I’ll play with him in […]

January 2022 Monthly Wrap-Up & Best of the Bunch

My Goings-On in January: Here are the things that stand out to me this month: My son’s Special Olympics snowshoeing competitions. Technically, the state competition took place during the first three days of February, but since I’m late writing this post (partially because of that 3-day competition), I’m including it here. Noah competed in January and qualified for state for both the 50m and 100m races. Then, at state, he got the gold medal overall […]
