Just in time for my poorly named evening of reading (Adults Read Things They Wrote as Kids), a package from my Mom arrived in the mail:

Inside, I found five scribblers.* They were all journals from elementary school at Sackville Centennial. There’s some great stuff inside, and I’m looking forward to reading from these on Monday. Too bad I don’t have an overhead projector, because there are some great illustrations inside.

Thanks, Mom!

* If you don’t know what a scribbler is, you may not be from the East Coast. A scribbler is another word for the type of notebook, or workbook, you’d use in elementary school. The OED defines scribbler as: “A scribbling-book or pad.”
