Yeah, except i think a high school rp would be fun, but not a regular school. Like maybe a school for artsy talented kids and it has classes like hanggliding and parasailing and stuff like that.

We read A Christmas Carol unabridged, but Great Expectations was too much of a challenge for my third and sixth graders. So we opted for this as our read aloud while studying this time in history and Charles Dickens.
