What a week!
I went to work last night for a couple of hours, then, I traveled to the other side of the county and visited a local Girl Scout troop. The troop was working on a badge that dealt with books and what goes into writing and publishing them.
This was an amazingly smart group of girls who had some amazing questions and extremely intelligent answers to many of my questions. They loved Barney & Lexi and with some of their questions, have me thinking of some new ideas for them! It was a wonderful visit and the girls were excited to have their own copy of BARNEY & LEXI: LOST IN LAWRENCEVILLE.
I woke up this morning to an email from Riley Elementary School in Vincennes, Indiana, asking if I can speak with them about bringing Barney & Lexi to their school. This is very special for me because Riley was the first school I ever went to. The thought of returning there to give a presentation is a humbling honor. I am beyond words at the thought of walking those halls again as an adult so I can give something back to the school that gave me some wonderful first memories.
