Time Marches On

first-bd-1Cindy and Lynn: Our Focus Group is aging! Here are Lynn’s twin grandsons Mason and Hayden on their first birthday. We first used these pictures in the 6th grade library orientation to illustrate the rule about not eating at the computers! Cindy still uses these even though the twins are growing up fast.


Mason and Hayden just celebrated their SIXTH birthday and so their reading tastes are sure to mature this year as they tackle first grade. Keep that in mind as you watch their Twins’ Thumbs Up awards in our blog entries! Since we hope to still be writing this blog for a lot of years, we decided we needed to be more specific about the boys’ ages. Here’s their updated birthday picture. “Cut the cake and let’s eat some more, Happy Birthday to you!” (John McCutcheon)
