Hey, where do the days go??? Among other things, I've been busily prepping for a school visit tomorrow. Why is it middle-schoolers make me so nervous? I could talk to 4th graders day after day and never get anxious about it, and the younger grades are just so adorable and happy -- I want to write some books for the little ones, because school visits to them are so much fun! But start getting up to 5th... well, they're still pretty easy, but I don't know, 6th, 7th, and -- ulp -- 8th? They're too cool for me. They're actually way cooler than me. That must be the problem. So hopefully they will be interested tomorrow. It's almost midnight, and I'm as ready as I'm going to be! (I have a high school visit coming up, and that's even scarier!)
And hey, Clementine turns 6 months tomorrow! Where do the months go??? It's been a half a YEAR already?!?! Madness.
That's all. See ya later.
The school visit was fabulous! The best I've ever done -- the kids acted out scenes from Blackbringer, and there was cake and flowers, and I found out they'd made and sold truffles themselves to raise money for my visit -- that's never happened before! I'm in love with the school, which was a really little school in a beautiful, pastoral spot. I wonder now why I was nervous. Best. Kids. Ever. :-)
