My friend Charity's very first book is officially out today! It's a YA co-written with Darcy Vance, and these ladies worked very hard for this! My copy's on its way from Amazon. Where's yours?

We got our test results yesterday. The good news: every kid in my class passed at least one of the three tests, and I had 7 kids with "commended performance" on at least one, meaning they missed 2 or less questions. We also brought our grade level average up 18 points in math, and 4 in reading. The bad: 4 failed 2 tests. Of those, I already planned to retain 2 in 4th grade, and had assigned two to summer school. Six failed reading (2 were a surprise, the others were expected). 4 failed math, and 2 failed writing. We should be a recognized campus again this year, and we made gains, which is good. I'm just glad it's done.

Now to keep the kids busy for 13 more days!

Thanks so much for mentioning Geek Girl! It's been a big day (with a big surprise from Darcy--she's tricky, so is my husband).
