Crocodaddy on board!

...on a bulletin board, that is. This is a bulletin board that greeted me at Margaret Beeks Elementary School in Blacksburg, VA last Friday. What a treat. I love the added crocodile balloon! A big thanks to Lindsay Barron and all the fine staff and PTO of Beeks, (not to mention a bright, enthusiastic student body) for making the visit such a success.

Equal thanks goes to Christel Reiber, PTO volunteer extraordinaire of Trimmer and Wallace Elementary Schools in York, Pennsylvania, which I visited the day before, on March 18th. Christel juggled books, toddlers and schedules to pull together a terrific pair of visits to sister schools. I only wish I'd remembered to pull out my camera for a photo.

Headin' out!

What a busy week ahead, (after a busy week LAST week!) but I'm excited about it. I'll be in York, Pennsylvania on Thursday, March 18th, visiting Trimmer and Wallace Elementary Schools. Then on Friday, I'll be in Blacksburg, VA, a few hours south, visiting Margaret Beeks Elementary.

Then, for icing on the cake, I'll be in Charlottesville on Saturday, attending the Festival of the Book. I've always meant to get to that and never have yet. So this will be a treat.

The BUSY part of last week was that I had two conferences, AND -- the best part -- got to meet and have dinner with my agent. It was such a great weekend!

Fagan and his grandmas

I think they look darned good to be the grandmothers of a 60-year-old man!

This is my 22-year-old son, Collin, of course, and my mother (standing) along with my husband's mother. Good show!

22-year-old Fagan

So here's the makeup job I did on my son Collin, who is playing Fagan this weekend in a local production of OLIVER. Except for the clown white and hair graying stuff, most of it is regular women's makeup. I'm kind of proud of it.

My new look!

Kicky and short... with highlights for the first time in my life! My boys are a little freaked out. They're used to their brown wren mom. I think I like their glam mom. She looks like a rich-and-famous-children's-book-author.
