well, as it is the best science journal i have ever seen, complete with "n" and "s" for north and south poles of magnets, i say it should be her favorite book!

i love looking at all those pictures of clara growing up. she'll always be special to me because i've been there for all those "moments" in her life. i'm really glad our girls are growing up together. it makes me very happy.
