In 2015-2016 school year, we read a book called Out of my Mind by Sharon Draper. It is an excellent book with a wonderful message and main character. I highly recommend this book. Maybe we will do it as a read aloud in Reading this year. Anyways, Uncle Ricky will send back pictures of our traveling Melody while she is on adventures with him. He sent back some from his trip to Ashaabat in September.

After having open heart surgery this summer, and the exciting news that he “gave his heart” to Loan, Uncle Ricky is finally traveling again. He is off to Kosovo and he will be there for a few days. See what information you can find on Kosovo as an extension project. What does their school day look like? Are there any famous landmarks there? Where is it on a map?
