Just too cool

This morning, at breakfast, one of the parents of our Newbery team approached me – both of them were happy with the winner. Then, at lunch, another parent came up to me. Apparently these two faculty children had spent breakfast talking about, and arguing about, the Newbery! That made our weeks of reading and talking so much more worth while: that they were talking about this stuff without adult prompting, having read books that they want to talk about, made me feel so proud. We’ll start the 2009 Mock Newbery next week – I think they’re up for it.
So many other responses that there’s no need for more from me.
