    1. Remember the story in the literature book about the pale green suit that the girl desperately wanted, and couldn’t afford. And her mother made a charge account for it, then prayed desperately for couples to get married so she’d have their fees to put toward it.
      It’s from that book.


  1. Rachel I counted 24 books on your list that I have read, but only 3 of them that I read last year. That’s odd though since you lived in my house most of that time. Should we do more book sharing? I miss hearing from you. Either you are reading too much or that Boy is taking your time. Or mabe teachering is a full time job.


    1. Probably we should share more books, although if we read seperate ones, our collective range of knowledge is broader. 🙂 Why you haven’t been hearing from me is because I’ve been at home! Funny mom.
