Drop Everything and Read

Lessons for Girls!  Sheer brilliance. . . the Matron is an instant regular reader.  She'll do a real post later but had to share the find.  She knows you'll love it!  Here's the site's home page.

Hi, MM, thanks for dropping by my blog earlier. I will confess that I wasn't sure, initially, how to respond to your comment -- I thought you might have been being sarcastic. But your link here suggests otherwise, and I'm glad.

You should consider writing one of the lessons for girls yourself. Your daughter seems very creative and innovative -- I'm sure there's a lesson there waiting to be written.
