Happy Birthday Karl!!!!

The weather was gorgeous yesterday, so Josh and I went swimming and then to the library. I also got the laundry done. Pretty good for me. ;) Here is a picture of what Josh is reading now:
It is another historical fiction book, this one a journal of Sean Sullivan A Transcontinental Railroad Worker. Here is a link to read about the book: Click here. I am glad he has found these books, he really seems to enjoy them.
I watched the movie Temple Grandin last night-she is a woman with autism. The movie is on HBO right now, I loved it. Claire Danes plays Temple Grandin. I was glad I watched it. Sometimes it can be very challenging working with children with autism, and this movie was very encouraging and gave me some great ideas to use in the classroom. I get frustrated sometimes, so I needed to see this movie.
Well, today I am off to class. This week is the half way mark! Yay!!! It is also my husband Karl's Birthday!!! Happy Birthday Karl!! Have a great day!!

Hi Lori;

What a great book Josh is reading. I clicked on the link to read about it and it's facinating. It always brightens my day when I hear about children who enjoy reading.

Happy Birthday to Karl! Save me a piece of the cake. ;-}

Have a blessed day my friend. Hugs

Hi, Lori~

That movie Temple Grandin sounds really good I will have to look that up. My godson has autism and I see how hard his parents try with him. They even have had him in early intervention since he was two.

Isn't it wonderful to see the kids get so excited about books and reading?

Enjoy your swimming, library today and hope Karl has a Happy Birthday. Thank you also for your kind words about my cat Misty's passing. Having her for 19 years was a long time for her and I am blessed and thankful for that time! :o)
