    1. Thanks Ayuni! I'm glad you enjoyed the links. I always like to know if others also enjoy the things I've found amusing and interesting as I did. I liked all those ideas on ways to probe for more details about school from the kids. Hope it helps you out in your post-school conversations with your daughter!
