Still Swinging!


Hi everyone! I know I have virtually disappeared for a while. Things got pretty busy...I got really stressed out and didn't think I was going to make it. However, I've gotten over some major hurdles and things are looking good!

Highlights of my experience: I gave some book talks at Geneva High School on Friday. It was a great experience and I learned a lot. I was pleased with how things went. At another school, I was told by a second grade boy that he thinks that I'll catch on fast and be a good librarian some day.

I've written one research paper this past week. I have another research paper coming up. I am doing it on story telling traditions among Native Americans. I have all my participation activities lined up. I'm pretty excited about all of that. I will be facilitating two book discussion groups at an elementary school, giving a thematic storytelling presentation at another elementary story and helping with some collection development at a middle school. I've already completed the high school requirement...mentioned earlier.

Best of all, I have gotten good grades so far!

Love this picture of Alicia taken this past August!

It's good to hear from you even if it is sporadically. I appreciate the phone calls here and there and it was great to see you and the girls Saturday afternoon. Once you get to the break, we'll have to get together.

I'm glad you're feeling a little less stressed, and congratulations on the grades. I don't think I've ever known you to get a bad grade on anything.

Very cute picture of Alicia.
