And all the sweet serenity of books.

    that is so true! I have some cute pictures of when Nathaniel was a baby and Sarah was first starting to read. She was reading to Rebecca and Nathaniel. :)

    I'll have to copy those quotes. :)

    Ok, now I must go to work! :)

  2. I love a good quote but nowadays it is so hard to find the good ones when you go looking because you have to weed through all of the less than lovely ones by Jerry Seinfeld and Oprah, etc. :).

    Don't you love it when the little ones flock together and look so sweet :)? Benjamin will be running around with the others soon!
