Happy Weekend!

Hope you’re all having a great spring break! We spent a few wonderful days in Arizona with several other Viewpoint School families. Our kids had a blast at a hotel that had 3 big watersides, a pool and a swirling lazy river. My daughter and her friend babysat the younger kids for the first time while the grown-ups had a fabulous dinner at The Arrogant Butcher. Back to school on Monday, well-rested and happy. –Christina

Here are a few of my favorite links for weekend reading:

Funny article about what happens when a mom brings the “wrong” potato to her daughter’s preschool for Spud Day. Oh, the perfectionism of it all! (Brainchild)

I shared this on BTB’s Facebook Page…an interesting read.  The writer captures some of the most common notions about public and private schools in an interesting way. (Salon)

What happens when you dislike your kid’s teacher? Or, her style rubs you the wrong way. It happens. (Literary Mama)

Cool ways librarians are helping English language learners who are loyal patrons in school and public libraries. (School Library Journal)
