I got my approval today to attend BEA on Wednesday! I know there is a Kidlit drink night that night, and I plan to stop by, but who else will be around during the day? What is a “can’t miss”? I haven’t even looked at the schedule yet…..

My eleven-year old sister is too much like me. This is the text message she sent me at 10pm. “Don’t tell mom cause I’m supposed to be in bed right now, but do u know where they sell cheap book lights? Flashlights are too hard 2 hold & read at the same time so I need 1 that clips onto the page. Or do you have one? Cause I read at night.”
Needless to say, I just ordered her a booklight and it’s on its way. I told her not to tell Mom. :)

For those of you who don’t know, I teach in NJ. The state budget is in dire straits and education is taking the hardest hit under our new governor. As a result of the awful budget situation, I received my RIF letter on Friday. I’m staying positive and hoping that I am brought back after this all shakes out, but I am also drafting various contingency plans. I can’t imagine not teaching, so I am crossing my fingers that there is a spot for me come September.
However, today was an amazing day, spent with my best friends from college, their husbands, dogs, and kids. We went to Ag Field Day at our alma mater and it was amazing. Thank goodness for good friends! And cute babies. :)
