"We just finished reading Roll of Thunder, Hear my Cry by Mildred Taylor. Set in the South in the 1930's with themes of racial conflict, family unity, and justice, it was a bit heavy for the holidays. Still, it was interesting to see how my sheltered kids reacted to the inequalities and injustices faced by the characters in the story."
Another Friday is here. Just a reminder that today is a mini-work day on campus from 11:30 to 3:30. And after helping out at school for a bit, remember to be Free by Five o'clock and step away from your electronic media. Rain is in the forecast so maybe it's the perfect time to start a new family reading book, such as the one above or one mentioned last week or have a family game night. Whatever you choose, enjoy the weekend!
