One thought on “All the Interesting Stuff

  1. Dear Emily, Most amused by your “confession” regarding lists. I’d be very interested to see your verb list, if it is convenient to send. And I’ll watch for engaging verbs and other words to add to your lists. Sehr fleissig bist du, as the Germans say. We were extremely saddened to hear that Pasha’s wonderful heart is ailing. I hope she remains comfortable and has many months or years to be with you. What would poor Stella do without her! Mom sends her love, as do I. Joe reports A and M are taking to first grade quite nicely, after some anxiety about having to go to the big kids’ playground. I hope The Last Gantian is coming soon.
