the book fair has rolled out...

Sorry I've been away for so long. It's because the Book Fair has been in town and I have come home exhausted every day, and yesterday was our Donuts with Dads event which starts at 7am. Which means I was there at 6am, which meant I was up at 5am. That may not sound early to some of you moms out there, but I normally don't get up until 6:45am. I'm always at my desk by 7:30...I just move fast in the morning.

But the Book Fair has left my library and things will be back to normal tomorrow. Yay. I love how much money we always raise from the BF and how many books I can buy, but our fair is quite the production, as you can tell. We completely empty out our small computer lab and cover the bookshelves in the library.

It's been an overwhelming experience to have my workspace turned upside down. I really enjoy all the fun that it brings, but it is not the calm, quiet place that my library normally is.

In the coming days I will share our pumpkin carving experience and some things that are going on at work. There is stuff to share but my mind can't even wrap around it all right now. No, it's not adoption stuff. There isn't anything going on in that front.

Talk to you soon!

You were at a book fair? I'm so jealous! Don't you love being by books? Handling them, looking at them, unearthing your childhood favourites? What did you get?

Our school's book fair is next week. Caroline is already scoping out the flier they sent home to see what she can buy.
It's a crazy time for librarians; thankfully it only happens once a year, eh?

Have a great weekend!

PS--how far are you from Cary? I think we're going to Craig's sister's for Thanksgiving and I was hoping to sneak in a lunch or something (on that friday) with you, if you're not too far and don't have any family commitments. Just a thought!

Hey Sis. I hope all is well. I left you a message or two on your cell a while ago. It's been a crazy few months, I know, same here. School is stressful but what is new. I just cant believe we are already heading down the road for Christmas, scary! My homeroom students are making good progress, it's my inclusion class that seems to be standing still. Too many hoolagins in one room. Anyway, mom just got a new puppy. Another Boston Terrier. Her name is Sara Lee, after the dessert. Sounds silly but it fits her. Now Sophie has 2 regular playmates, Susie Q and Sara Lee. I loved the photos of Phoebe. I've been trying to see how I can take my pictures off my phone and download them on to the computer. Once I figure it out I will send them to you. Love ya and hope Charlie and the girls are doing good!

I'm early riser but to leave the house by 6am would be a struggle.
