Jan 31

I ended my first week in Colorado at Foster Elementary in Arvado. Okay, first off … this is the only school I’ve visited that had it’s own set of unicycles. That’s right. I was told they have a “circus sports” activity and YES, I had to try one. And YES, Colonel Clown of the Clown Commandos would’ve given me a poor performance review. And NO, I don’t have any pictures of me on the thing. That’s all I have to say about that.
I had two fun presentations and enjoyed meeting with Mrs. Julie and Mrs. Carmen’s classes after the second show. They had tons of great questions. And yes, Gretta and Kaylee, if it comes up, I’ll see about writing your name into a book somewhere down the road.
I enjoyed a “have lunch with the author” lunch where I met the winners of a special essay contest where they wrote why they wanted to have lunch with an author. I enjoyed visiting with: Cayden, Ily, Sofia, Andrew, Isaiah, Riley, Natalia, Genesis, Olivia, Pablo, Lydia, Brooklen, Nicole, Kathleen, and Mirna. Thanks for the fun lunch, everyone!
Before and after a writing workshop, I received bunches of thank you cards from several 2nd and 3rd grade students. There were too many to post but I’ve added two: a cool glittery art piece from Hailey and a portrait of yours truly by Karla. Very cool!
Thanks to Mrs. Coverdell-Smith for inviting me and scheduling a fun, action-packed day. Thanks to Mrs. Chumachero for setting up all the equipment for my shows. And a big thanks to all the Foster Elementary Roadrunners. I look forward to reading each and every one of your cards!
