Our literacy night will NOT be about AR. We want to encourage families to write together and are encouraging teachers to come with their families to write together also. You are most certainly welcome to come and observe and participate if you'd like. The CRWP teachers are organizing it and sorta of "hosting" it. We will see what develops from it.
I have recently been doing some reading on Family Literacy. Anyone out there with suggestions of what you have done before?

I am somehow exhausted from sitting in meetings all day. No contact with the children today at school and I am still exhausted.
I am however excited about family literacy night at our school (GHES) in November. The Cherokee Rose teachers are organizing it. And then we will see where it flies.
I am also excited to go to UWG next Wed and listen to the poet read his work. Everyone should come.

My car unfortunately died and b/c saturn is out of business, they no longer are making the electronic part i need.. So I am on a very long wait list for one. As such, it will be very difficult for me to even look for a place and I am on a very short schedule before school starts. Hope all is well.

Our house is still in disarray with boxes everywhere, but every evening Dan and I retreat to our back deck and enjoy the view. I uploaded a few pictures to share with you.
The view above is from our deck if you are standing at the railing. Our wireless connection is on the other side of the wall in our office so now you know where I am while I write to you.
This next view is what I see from my chair. Dan mounted the bird feeders yesterday and our yellow peppers in the pot on the rail were harvested for yesterday’s soup.
The stand of trees above has two chairs in the center where Dan and I can picnic in the afternoons. It’s also fun to sit under the trees when it’s raining (with umbrellas of course). All of these pictures are a bit fuzzy because they were taken with Dan’s cell phone.
Both Dan and I hope that all of you are enjoying your summer days. Let us know if you are ever in the Western NC area. We would love to see you. Contact me through email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our address is:
407 Monteith Gap Rd
Cullowhee, NC 28723
I wish you the best,
