"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Read to Children (for Hours on End)

The project:
Cuddle on the couch and read for hours to my children.

3-4 hours (who was counting?)

Why bother?
Today we were the recipients of a charitable deed. A friend who won't be teaching again next year is cleaning out her classroom. She invited the girls in to select as many books as they'd like from her shelves. The girls brought home two grocery bags full, and set straight to work.

Worth it?
I LOOOOOOVE cuddling with my kids, a good book in hand, and no pressure to head off anywhere anytime soon. Wonderful day. And thanks, S, for the books. The girls clearly were thrilled. :)
