It has been a busy week. It was the last full week of summer before school starts for the kids. We took them to the New York State Fair on Thursday. Yesterday was the annual Crosswinds 5k...which we all took part in (ouch, I'm sore!), and last night was the ring of fire around Canandaigua Lake. I have been also busy doing school work. One of the courses I am taking is a Children's Literature course. This week I checked out every Caldecott Award winning book that was possible to check out from our library from the years between 1980 and present day. Caldecott Awards are meant to honor the artists who illustrated a particular book. So I have been reading some great picture books with wonderful illustrations like "Kitten's First Full Moon", "The Polar Express", and "Owl Moon." I must have checked out at least 15 books and put several on reserve. And of course no graduate work is made complete without doing some write up of some sort. Luckily, it is not too bad. I must pick 5 of these books and write a short summary and evaluation of each. I have 3 done already.
That is all for now. I'll end with these words-"Go read a book!!!"
