  2. Finding the right book to start a kid reading who otherwise thinks it a chore, and then providing enough after that so he or she is solidly hooked, is the greatest thing you can do for that child. From then on, they will each be able to teach themself anything they need to learn. Not minimizing formal schooling – just acknowledging that the attitude brought INTO that schooling makes a huge difference.

  3. Hi Tammy. I like your bio and your website! We have a lot in common. Maybe I’ll put that I’m a runner on my bio page. I’ve been running a long time, but I am not the distance runner you are. Time is always forcing me to cut a run short. Anyway, so nice to meet you In the virtual writing world. Thank you for the follow.


  4. hi tammy, i’m in the too awesome category with you and 2 others. i’m #4. i just got linked today. i started writing a few days ago. i got behind b/c i was moving my blog to a new site. same address, just downsized sort of, to wordpress.com. i’m paying for my domain name to keep my same address. i tho’t i’d take a few minutes to meet the people in my category. looks like we have a nice variety here among the 4 of us:). blessings. i hope to see you again soon.

  5. Thanks for visiting Life in the Slow Lane and choosing to follow along. Like you, I have passion about writing and reading, and I have recently slowed my blog down from one more focused on writing about writing to writing about my life and faith. I hope you’ll enjoy our journey together
