March also means reading month for many schools. I love seeing kids and teachers get excited about reading. With all the busy things that are happening in schools today, it's comforting to think that we can still take a moment or two to celebrate our favorite titles and authors, and even spend a little extra time wrapped up in a great story. This month reminds us that even with all the expectation in today's data, reading is most importantly meant to be enjoyed.
Finally, March reminds us that Spring is near. It is always nice after a long Michigan winter, to know that warmer weather is on the horizon. Every year, a group of my extended family and friends make the trek south to Daytona Beach to spend the week together in the sun and ocean. I can't think of a better way to celebrate the ending of a great month, than relaxing on the beach with friends and family and a good book during the sun of an 80 degree day, thinking about the basketball game tipping off at 8:00 that night!
