First, let me explain. On the last day of the first semester, some girls from UHC (the Upstate Homeschool Co-op) and I created a book club. Not one of those groups that get together to read books, one that gathers to write books. Our little club included Julia, Sudie, Abbie, and me. A few days later we were busy working on our first project: The Mysterious Figure. In the middle of writing our book, and struggling to come up with a title for our group (besides The UHC Book Club), my mom helped us settle a date when we could get together.
On December 19 our little group, plus one new member (Heidi), minus Sudie (who was busy that day) went to a local roller skating rink where we hung out for about two hours. Afterward, we went to QT (where my dad bought us each a slushy) before heading over to my house where we spent a couple of hours working on our book.
Over a dinner of pizza, we discussed our title. The girls and I came up with several names but recently agreed upon BAATH, an acronym made up of the first letters of our last names: Baucom, Arnold, Alix, Thomas, and Haase. I can’t wait for the next time we get to hang out together!
