Kids say the darn’dest things…

No matter how old they are, I am learning everyday that kids really do say interesting things. At the high school the other day someone turned and said “Let me knock on wood.” He did, on the trunk of a tree. His friend asked him why he was knocking on the tree. His response “Duh, it’s wood isn’t it?” I sure hope this wasn’t one of my kindergarten students back in the day.

Mission San Antonio de Padua

The Saturday,  April 11th came with a new adventure.  Me and a group of writing buddies took a trip to this beautiful mission in Jolon.  Saturday was Mission Days. This event took visitors back to a time in California’s history when the mission was a working mission.  We enjoyed wonderful weather, good food, and talking to many visitors. Our goal: to encourage people to step up to our tables and look at the books we have authored.  Our team included Janice Stevens and Pat Hunter, the author and illustrator of many books based on California, one of them, Remembering the California Missions, Anne Biggs and I co-authored a partner curriculum guide for the missions book. Gayle Taylor Davis, the author of Grief Sucks but Love Bears All Things, and Karen Moore author of Journey of the Knight.  We all had the opportunity to sign our books. I convinced a family to purchase a curriculum guide as a gift for their daughter’s fourth grade teacher. IMG_2647 IMG_2656 IMG_2622
