a few changes.....

in the way I handle things.....................

just because I start reading a book doesn't mean I have to finish reading a book. I already returned one to the library that did not catch my attention in the first three chapters.

it. is. okay.

when I think of something either do it RIGHT THEN or send myself a reminder.

**oh and a new bird calendar has been hung, in the bathroom, so that they may learn about birds they may never see. they are already excited!

Oh, amen sister- if I'm not captured within a few pages, back it goes to the library. I generally try to read the first few while I'm still there so that I can avoid it, but some still leak through...

And I absolutely love your idea of hanging things in the bathroom to promote learning- love it! Off I go to find a calendar, or a map, or a list, or some pictures...

Love you!

Okay, money's tight- so I scrounged around, digging through the few things we have that are NOT in storage right now, and found a placemat with a map of the world on one side, and all of the individual continents and trivia on the others side! So for now, that is what hangs above the toilet- and it's laminated, so steam from the shower won't wrinkle it! :) What a great idea- thank you, friend!
I can't wait until we move into our house and pull out our box of National Geographic maps- the downstairs bathroom will be our *school* bathroom! :)
