I hope you had a lovely long weekend celebrating the 4th! I spent last week packing up my library because I will be spending next year home with the twins. It’s very bittersweet since I love my job as a library teacher, my students, and my colleagues. But, I just don’t feel ready to leave my little bookworms and I love being home with them.
