Hi!!

Hello everyone!!

I am alive and kicking. I have been doing a little knitting not much. More reading than anything. I just finished The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd and I just picked up Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy translated by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky. I am only three pages in and I like it (I guess that's why it's a classic).

Oh, before I leave Miss Straight A's AKA Anger Management got accepted into Wilson Sr. High Finance and Business Academy (her goal is to go to Columbia, law school and own her own law firm) and I know she can do it. Here that's a big deal because we have crappy schools and it is one of the only bright spots here. So, she is following behind her big bro, who graduated from their Science and Math Technology Academy.

Mr. Stefon is doing great - why wouldn't he? The world revolves around him (knock on wood).

"The Secret Life of Bees" is a must read -- I believe the movie is coming out this fall. Congrats on your daughter's good grades, she is very lucky to get into Wilson, I feel you on the school system, my daughter graduated from Banneker, and we were very pleased.

That's great news! If I had known how difficult schools would be when I decided to have kids...
