During one of the first few days of the school year I bumped into a 3rd grader in the hallway and inquired about how her summer had been.
"Did you take any vacations?"
The little girl said she didn't, but then updated her answer by saying, "Well, just Georgia. My mom's side of the family lives there."
Knowing this was a divorce situation, and sensing her lack of enthusiasm for the topic, I decided to shift the topic to something else. "Well, did you read lots of books this summer?"
"No. Georgia really doesn't have many books."
