I have come to fall in love with teaching in Catholic schools. What are YOU in love with?...

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." - Pedro Arrupe

Under the What?

Do you like mystery novels?

What about mysterious artwork - missing and unidentifiable?

Does history of WWII intrigue you?

Do you enjoy reading about pesky neighbors and kids who seem to know better than the adults around them?

If you answered yes to many (or all!) of the above, then Under the Egg is the book for you. (Yes, it's geared toward 5-6th graders, but it's definitely a worthwhile, page-turning read.) Surprisingly enough, I just handed my copy off to one of my 6th grade boys - I think he'll enjoy all the Monuments' Men stuff.

Man, I wish my next book didn't have to be for professional development...
