If only. I'd love to be matching ribbons for someone. Boys only here.

Just found your blog and found the Betsy quote. I love the Betsy-Tacy books and have introduced quite a few girls to them. They are such wonderful stories, and the writing has held up so well over the years!

I read all the Betsy books in elementary school...loved every single one of them! I read once that there is a Betsy-Tacy society working to preserve Betsy, Tacy, and Tibb's homes....http://www.betsy-tacysociety.org/
