Mother’s Day and IRA

It has been such a busy week with Mother’s Day and the International Reading Association conference but it was nice to spend so much time with my daughter, Jessie, who helped me during the whole week.

Despite the large crowds [left] our booth [right] still looked great.

It definitely feels like spring again. There is a robin that has decided to make her nest on a porch lamp right outside my front door. Despite my best efforts to persuade her not to, I finally gave up and she moved in. Out on the pond the rowers are back in full force. Between the chaos on the pond and birds chirping, it sure sounds like spring again too!
