However, although my mom was the captain of that ship and I asked her to bring me ashore, she also had a long career teaching elementary school and was very gifted in it. I have many childhood memories of sitting in her classroom as she set in up in late summer or after school. She made games and fun bulletin boards and taught kids to read. I think this was highly influential on both B and I.

Remember the movie "You've Got Mail"? One of our favorite parts is when Tom Hanks offers Meg Ryan a "bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils" to celebrate that fall back-to-school feeling. (And yes...B has given me one.) That kind of happy, eager feeling about school is one we hope to pass on to our kids. We did school today...can we do it again tomorrow?!
