You're doing a great job with your challenges!! My son has read a few of the same books you finished this month. Hope May is just as great!

I am so envious that you managed to finish so many challenges! I need to take a leaf out of our book and focus just on finishing my challenges!

I admire how you have managed to finish so many challenges! I have to do something with mine...Well, I know what, read more. Also, I know what you mean about how time flies...Every school year just seems shorter and shorter...

Staci--I am trying to read some of the more popular YA so that I have good stuff to recommend to my students!
