A to Z Challenge: A-G...oops, and H & I

I arrived at this A to Z Challenge a little late, so I've got some catching up to do.  Thank you, Arlee, for this way to get me thinking outside the box and for the chance to get to know other bloggers!

The Alphabet is a key component in teaching kids to read, as any of my tutoring students sure better be able to tell you.

My Brother is graduating with his Ph.D in May, received raved reviews on his dissertation and defense, AND has a book contract!  I'm incredibly proud of him and I love him very much.

Could I have any more trouble coming up with - wait! Coming up with ideas for C???

The Dogwood trees - whoops, they're Redbuds, but I'll forget to mention them by the time I get to R - are in bloom in Wichita and are gorgeous - I love them against the backdrop of the green leaves and white blooms of other trees.

E. is my brother's wife.  I love her for her creativity, kindness, wit, encouragement, photo-taking skills, incredible cooking and child-caring skills, and her ability to live with my brother.

I've begun exploring other blogs and networking sites, and I'm amazed!  It's great getting to know my Fellow bloggers and Finding so many others with similar interests and terrific insight and wit!

Grandpa is currently laughing at Barney Fife's antics on The Andy Griffith Show as I sit near him on the couch and type.  We enjoy sitting together, whether we're doing our own thing or laughing at Barney together - Don Knotts was so talented!

Hel-lo, doing a letter every day except Sundays means you include Saturdays, and we're actually on

I, which this Idiot should have known - if my students can't tell you about the alphabet, it may not be their fault after all...


  1. EXCELLENT catch up idea! love it...welcome to the challenge. http://www/

  2. Yay, super idea for catching up. I had to combine C, D & E in a post to stay on track. That's why this challenge is so fun, you can make up your own rules!

  3. C shouldn't be that hard to come up with us. How about candy, Christmas or cats?

    I am your newest follower, coming here from Redhead Riter's Community.

  4. No kidding! I should have done Clueless!

  5. Stopping by from The Blog Frog. I'm so glad I did! I keep hearing about this A-Z challenge, and I've been curious. I certainly have a lot of catching up to do, but I think I might steal your idea for how to catch up and give this a try.

    Great blog! I'm a new follower.
