Share Something on Friday (Kim)

It's time for Share Something on Friday. Come on everyone out there. Don't be shy. We would love to hear from you. Share something fun with everyone. I thought Fridays would be a good day to share about something great that happened during the week. Tell us about something new in TJ Ed you are trying, something fun you did with your family, a great book you just read, how you are doing on your Monday goal or anything else you can think of. You can leave us a comment or post on your blog and link to us.
I also had a great time at the book club last night. We had a great discussion and I always enjoy what everyone else has to say. I am proud to say that I finished The Taming of the Shrew, and I really enjoyed it. I am not as scared of Shakespeare anymore. In fact I want to read more. I didn't understand everything I read, but I got the main gist of it.
For those of you that didn't make it last night we are discussing The Lonesome Gods by Louis L'Amour next month. I am looking forward to our discussion on this book. I read it during the summer and I loved it. It is very easy to see many of the TJ Ed principles applied in the book. Happy reading.
For Share Something on Friday I thought I would share something about my 11 year old who is in transition to scholar. We took this week off of school for spring break, a little spring cleaning, and so I could get a few things done that I needed to do. So, even though they haven't needed to do anything school related, each morning I have found T11 sitting in her usual chair reading and not just novels. In fact, right now she is reading a book about Sea Otters. Last time we were at the library I got her several books on sea otters. She has been saying that she wants to be a marine biologist when she grows up. She has been devouring the books I got for her. It is so fun to see the different phases of learning. It's exciting to know that when they reach the transition to scholar phase they want to study 6-8 hours a day, they like it and you don't even have to ask them to do it. They just do it because they love to learn. It is so great.
Okay, it's your turn to share something with us. Leave a comment or post on your blog. If you post on your blog click on the title of your article and post that link. That way it will always take us directly to your post, you can copy and paste it below.

Thanks to Dahlia for posting and linking to us. If you haven't read her post I recomend you do, it was great. She inspired me to clean out my family room. Thanks Dahlia.
