  15. Susan, how do your always find the most interesting things to share? I've never seen anything like this. I had no idea that a mother swan would transport her babies on her back. This is so sweet. I've printed the story off to share with my students. Thank you for spotlighting this!

  16. I love those babies. I wanted to thank you, because of you I did my first PS and have loved it. I am hoping to get around to seeing everyone tonight. The weekend got away from me, but it was such a joy. I have sent my thank you to MS. PS herself also, but want to thank you because I learned about it from you. Also, I felt like a rock star when I saw that you were following me, I have admired your blog for ages, way before becoming a blogger myself. I hope you have enjoyed the beautiful GA weather this weekend.
