The 4th grade Book Fair

We are careening into the last 9 weeks of school and then… summer! I am ready! Leah has had a great year in the 4th grade with all kinds of fun projects – the latest being a Book Fair! Each child got to pick a favorite book to showcase for their classmates and parents. It was quite an event! Leah chose an American Girl book called “Julie” that is set in 1974 in San Francisco. As part of the assignment, she wrote about social change in the 1970s and things children enjoyed doing “back then” like roller skating. It’s funny to me that it seems soooo long ago to her as my mom’s childhood of the 1940s seems to me!

Suffice to say, Michael was nonplussed.
