Last year when I checked, this blog had an elementary school reading level.
It's embarrassing, really, to think that I am not writing convoluted sentences of great import, but instead writing Dick and Jane.
Except what is high school reading? Which high school? Thor's English class read the abridged version of Huck Finn, the censored and cleaned up version for those who might be offended by being reminded that slavery and racism were once accepted in this country. (I think it had something to do with needing to finish the book quickly, but it's really pathetic that a sophomore English class can't handle the full text of Huck Finn. ) Thor had to write about it, and he said it was really hard because all the controversial and interesting bits were gone.
Now they are reading Anthem by Ayn Rand, so it seems the abridged Huck Finn may have been a fluke.
And because I have to add a photo to every post, here's a photo of the rose bush in my front yard.
