#38 of All the Things-Fish In A Tree

Hi everybody, I have this one post ready to go and then, I’m actually going to take a longer break than I anticipated.  I’ve gotten a promotion at work but still working part of my old position until we hire and train whoever will take over.  Things are kind of crazy, I’m learning lots, working extra, and feeling some pressure so the blog will have to go to the back burner until I can think straight again.  I hope you all are doing well!  Until then, enjoy this great book with a kid in your life.
