The week got off to a slow start with only 3 out of 5 posts that I intended to write, though I'm sure you can all understand what it's like to bounce back from a holiday hangover. I have managed to clean out 2 garbage bags of toys and miscellany from the girls' room and playroom though (shhhh!). A wise tip: refrain from dumping bags off to your local Goodwill for a few weeks just in case something is discovered missing. Why do I know this? It happened tonight! Thankfully, the bag was sitting in my garage and I was able to recover it without blowing my cover.
So, since I fell short with my posts this week, here's a special one for a Saturday night since I'm hunkered down at home with a chest cold. I was delighted to discover a new-to-me blog, eensies, after Rebecca left a comment on my Organize post. Rebecca and Brett are elementary school teachers and decided to write a blog after so many parents have asked them over the years, “what should we be doing at home?” From what I've read so far, their blog has been very enjoyable and inspring at times. Their post on "Independent Reading" was timely for me since Bean is immersed in reading. It's hard to refrain from correcting her pronunciation or blurting out the word when she stumbles but I manage to bite my tongue.
