Kate McKinnon Will Voice Ms. Frizzle in Netflix’s “Magic School Bus” Reboot by Cole Delbyck (Huffington Post – February 8, 2017)

Music

Solmization from Encyclopaedia Britannica (accessed April 17, 2017)

Spiritual

I’ve read this quietly, read this aloud, printed a copy for myself to read at work, and sent a copy to a friend. Resounding YES.

The Blessing in the Ashes by Katie Leigh (April 3, 2017, blog post)
When searching for Holy Week blog posts in WordPress, I came across Katie’s beautifully written entry about Lent with a parallel to Harry Potter. I’ve now subscribed to her blog and can’t get enough of her writing about spiritual practices in every day life.
