The highlight of my week, so far, has been having the opportunity to read to my daughter Denise's first grade class at Hussey School in Augusta.

As part of their Read-A-Thon, Hussey School teachers have asked parents and other community members to stop the school to read a book to the kids.  Other readers include local politicians and business people.

They even let me pick the book!  At first, I was going to go with "War And Peace", but I was afraid I'd stumble over too many words, so I went with "The Pigeon Needs A Bath"

What a great group of kids!  I'm very proud of my daughter and her classmates!
