The very best place to get in the Christmas spirit is in an elementary school. Yes, it tends to get crazy, but all of the kids are so so so excited and there are parties and programs and pajama days and surprises. It is so cheerful! I’ve been reading Robert Sabuda’s pop up version of The […]
Poor blog, I’ve pretty much left you high and dry (apologies to Radiohead) this semester. Now that the school year is coming to a close, I’ve finally decided to write something
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down. However, the storm was pretty much over by the time that I had carpool duty and got to wear my new bright red rain boots, so I think it’s gonna be a good week! If it is raining were you live, take a look at My Side of […]
My kids have an innate sense of bad timing. When they are supposed to be asleep, they are awake. In the morning when it is time to get ready for school, they want to sleep. When they are supposed to be playing, they are hungry. But when dinner is ready and on the table, they are […]
I am determined to blog at least once a week. I was thinking on Monday afternoons, but that is the beginning of the week and nothing noteworthy has actually happened yet.

Ah…teacher’s work day. School doesn’t seem right without the kids in it, but we do get so much done. So here I sit, gettin’ stuff ready for an amazing visit from Teacher from the Black Lagoon author Mike Thaler and counting entry forms for the AEA sponsored “Be a Champion and Read” contest. Students from schools […]
Yep…I’ve got writer’s block. Everything I’ve tried to write has come out wrong lately: too fakey, too cheesey, too weird, too silly… So it may take a while, but I’ll come through. I promise!
Geez Louise! It’s only the fourth day of school and we are already doing tests! I know if I try to find time to write a longer, better, funner post I’ll never succeed, so I will write longer later, by and by. We have so many fun things coming up in the library this fall: […]
Oh, summer! Please slow down! You are slipping away so quickly. However, I am already getting excited about that first day of school. My very favorite thing in the world is greeting the students as they are unloading the bus on that first day. It’s priceless and almost as good as sunlight and bubblegum.
