We take the Scholastic Book Order very seriously.


Here they are, poring over it before breakfast this morning.
Their Christmas lists are growing.


In other news, happy 25th to my best little sister, Julianne! Love you, Jooj.

  5. As a former first grade teacher I can tell you...book orders are a BIG deal! You should be in the office when the mail arrives and all of those Scholastic boxes are stacked up.The teachers get so excited! (It means free books for their classrooms you know!) I always felt like Santa a Christmas passing out the books at the end of the day!

  10. I don't know how those Scholastic people make any money. When I was teaching I would get so many free books every month - I loved it. I gave each of my kids $3 per month to order books....beyond that they paid for themselves. They always added some of their own money to get books.
