Yesterday Amanda was trying to explain to her little brother Kyle what it meant, showing him the table-like symbol that her teacher had drawn on her face.
She asked him, "Kyle, what's a kind of pie/pi you can't eat?"
"Mud pies?" he answered, proving that he's very quick on the uptake.
Yahoo news alerted me yesterday to the death of Myrtice McCurdy, who was known for only wearing purple. After reading about her, I think that Amanda couldn't follow after a more worthy role model.
I haven't posted what I've been up to, reading-wise, in a couple of weeks.
I am looking forward, as always, to participating in Katrina's Spring Reading Thing. It excites me to set that goal for the season -- to really think about what I'm going to read. I also love reading about others' reading habits.

Reviews I've written in the last couple of weeks:
- On Reading post about reading the works of Madeleine L'Engle
- I reviewed the first in one of her series that was unfamiliar to me, Meet the Austins
- A teen novel, Waiting to Score
- Laws of Harmony, an interesting novel that sort of defies genre classification
- Looking Closely, an interesting series of science picture books
