This week is our mid-winter school break. Do you have that where you live? I'd never heard of it until we moved here, but then again I grew up in California, Texas, and Florida and I guess you don't need those kinds of things in sunny climates. So, while I wish we were taking a vacation down to Florida to soak up some sun, we're instead staying snugly warm at home and having a read-a-thon this week. My kids and I have a goal to read all the picture books on this bookshelf together before the week is over.
