A Torch

Life is no brief candle to me; it is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.
George Bernard Shaw

The Last Olympian

The last book in the Percy Jackson series came out on Tuesday. I finished it last night and enjoyed Percy's adventure. There was a lot of action in The Last Olympian. I will hold any other opinions until my students have read the book! :) I have two copies. If any of my students would like to borrow a copy, let me know. As soon as my boys finish the books, I will be glad to share them.

The sun is shining and it has been hard to stay inside. We took our books outside and enjoyed the beautiful weather.
