1. This brand new blog by the amazing Brandy. She is going to teach me to teach my son to read. I am thrilled. I impulse-ordered the BOB set off of her website early this morning. I can't wait until they come. Jackson knows all of his letters and sounds, so this is an exciting next step for us.
2. This awesome tutorial by Suzanne at my beloved Strawberry Patches. Please go to it to see how to make perfect ruffles. One thing, though. Please do not come back and look at my ruffles after studying her amazing work. My ruffles are like kindergardeners vainly trying to apply for law school.
3. Finally, Fiscal Policy! Oh yes. Well, fiscal policy does not excite me as much as the speaker on fiscal policy- Beau! Come listen to a panel tonight at CSUB at 6:30 in the Dore Theater. Here is the info from the Finance website at Cal State.
