After reading about the importance of the olive, and olive oil, we went to a local store that offers samplings of dozens of olive oils - ironically, they do not carry any from Greece this time of the year in order to ensure all their oil is at it's freshest. We will have to stop by again and sample Greek olive oil. I never would have guessed it but the girls had a wonderful time sampling olive oil!
Books are a wonderful way to experience new worlds and ideas. Our house is filled with books, most of which are borrowed from our public library. Public libraries are an incredible resource, making books accessible to everyone, and we highly encourage everyone to discover theirs. If you are hoping to build your own home library, I've made it easy by including a search box for Amazon in the right sidebar. Please note that I have become affiliated with them, and would receive a small commission.
