Up here in Washington we've been enjoying some beautiful weather and I've been fighting a cold since returning home from California. This morning I read my book club selection for about 4 hours until I finished it. Wish You Well, by David Baldacci, is wonderful book that was hard to put down. Great old-fashioned storytelling.
So, aside from those things, there isn't a whole lot to share here on the home-front. Then I ran across a video that was so cute and inspiring, I knew I wanted to include it on my blog.
Meet Caine Monroy of East LA, California, an optimistic and enterprising 9 year old who began building a cardboard arcade in his dad's auto parts shop. He had everything--tickets, prizes, game levels, security features--everything except customers who wanted to play.
I don't know if it is because this all takes place a few blocks from the first school I ever taught at, or because Caine reminds me of some of my students, but it put a smile on my face and I had to share this: (the security feature with the "checkmark" is my favorite!)
