Thirty Word Thursday

(first off, happy birthday to my baby! My little Ryanna turns 5 today :) Such a big girl now!)

Oh, love Robert Cormier. Used to read the Chocolate War with my students way back when I was at Lexington School for the Deaf.

Happy Birthday, Ryanna!

Truer words were never written. Although it's much less of a headache if you get it right the first time :).
