Ah little brothers... Aren't they sweet?
Kim Sylvan shared these with me, and I'm sharing them with you. It's so nice when people are generous in this way. (Thank you Kim!)
First off, I had quite a welcome and was taken completely by surprise. I'd snuck into the school early to use the bathroom and there they were -- outside the bathroom! Ha!
I did my presentation. Yes, I am still talking about passenger pigeons everywhere I go. I enjoy it every time I do it.
AND notice in this last photo how many of the kids have their eyes closed. They are closing their eyes with me and they are imagining being in a car driving 60mph because 60mph is the speed passenger pigeons flew. Therefore, these students are now flying as fast as passenger pigeons (wind in their feathers). What fun it is for me to see this photo! At this moment in time, I've got my eyes closed too, so I had no idea this many kids were joining me. Yay!
Thanks again for a great day everyone! And thank you Kim Sylvan for sharing these photos with me!
Hope you're all having wonderful a Thanksgiving. I'm thankful for all of you!
Above is a photo of my grandfather -- we called him "Papa" -- with two lobsters. Somehow it seemed appropriate to the season!
Also, I had some good news last week: ONE CAME HOME has been nominated for the 2016 Grand Canyon Reader Award. Yay!
Now let's go eat some good food and take a long nap. Sounds good, doesn't it?
I've been NaNoWriMo-ing this month to generate words/pages for this new book I'm working on.
And guess what? I made it! 50,000 words this November.
(I liked getting the badge at the end, and the video from the NaNoWriMo staff. Cool!)
