Me (knowing full well the answer): Who knocked all those books on the floor?

[Very long pause]

Huck: Me!

Rose: He had to think over all his other crimes first.

    Thank you! When they are very short, I tend to post them on Twitter or FB instead—but I started collecting them on a separate blog so they wouldn’t be lost in the scrolldepths there. Except then I forgot that I was doing that, and I haven’t updated since March.

    Somehow I’ve missed that one! I follow your twitter, but that blog’s has some things I haven’t seen. I really should friend you on facebook one of these days. Your kids (and you!) are just amazing.

    I know you talked about privacy issues ages ago (and which I totally understand), but I do miss your updates/insights/anecdotes about Wonderboy. Being a special ed preschool teacher up in Oregon (with a Montessori background), I love hearing the point of view from a very educated parent. Plus he’s just such a cool kid!

    Jessica, re facebook, do friend me! 🙂

    I miss writing about Wonderboy in as much detail as I used to! It’s *so hard* to know where the right side of the privacy line is. He’s such a joy to me & I miss sharing his stories.
