Thankful Thursday

Thursday already? YIPPEE! I am catching up on yesterday’s work because I was out judging Chickasha Pom try-outs! It went well and I will admit I am a hard judge but this is a small school and once I saw the first couple of girls I realized I needed to judge more on potential rather than current skills level! Every time I gave someone a 1 (the lowest you can receive) I *sighed* because I feel awful for these girls and I wanted to thank them for trying but if you have no potential and can not hold a beat you can not be on a team!
The Book below I just finished up and it was a easy, quick and entertaining read! The Giver by Lois Lowry was actually brought to my attention by my friend Becky who purchased the book from one of her kids book clubs. (there is even a cliff’s note version so this must be required reading for some) This book is about a Utopian society and one boy who can see past that and longs for more, when I finished the last paragraph I wanted more if that tells you anything! I recommend this book for a easy spring read!!

Thankful Thursdays………………….

1. I am thankful for all my friends and family who sent me Birthday wishes!!! Much Appreciated!

    I am glad you read The Giver! I’ve read it twice in the last 15 years and I’m sure I’ll pick it up again and read it in the next 15 years.
