I had a fine time at Holland Elementary yesterday. Third grade teachers Brenda Pike and Eva Kovacs had done a wonderful job of preparing their students for the visit. They had read a number of my books and thought about what they wanted to ask. I dearly love it when teachers work with students in advance. The kids get so much more from the visit and naturally it’s a far more pleasant experience for the author. My thanks to them again and to principal Gary Tew for sending me the invitation.
A weekend with no plans. Unheard of. When my M.O.W. realizes this, I’m sure things will change. I only hope it doesn’t involve painting the house.
