Welcome to Monday! I hope you had a fun and restful weekend.

Today we will have D.E.A.R., examine a new quote, and make a garden map of Seedfolks.


  • Grab your book

  • Find a comfortable place to sit where you won't bug anyone and they won't bug you

  • Read a book--don't just pretend to read

20 minutes--enjoy it!
