After giving school talks all week in Connecticut, we’re back on Long Island and loving it! I had no idea the beaches here were so beautiful. Chloe, Noggin, and I had the entire place to ourselves this afternoon. We have school talks tomorrow, but if you’re in the area on Saturday at 1 pm come visit us at the Hampton Library in Bridgehampton, NY.
Romano says, “Don’t forget your reading glasses!”
Over the last 16 years, I’ve collected crates full of wonderful art made for me (and my dogs) by students from all over the United States. I try to hang as much as I can in my home but sadly I don’t have enough free space for each and every beautiful piece. SO I’ve decided it would be fun to post a few chosen ones on this blog! I will begin this IDITAROD ARTISTS series with a drawing I received in the mail a few weeks ago. The main artists are Ryan Coughlin, Brandon Harbin, Brennan Thoele, Nick Manning, and of course, the rest of the class at Tri-Valley Elementary in Downs, Illinois who signed this thank-you card. Thank you, I loved all of the cards you sent!
Thank you to Kate Walters and her dad, and the staff and students of Meadowbrook Elementary School in Forrest, Illinois for making Romano and me feel right at home! We really enjoyed our afternoon “talking mushing” with you. The students were an engaged, well-prepared (they knew all of the answers!), and perfectly-behaved audience. It was a fun day.
The Iditarod Sled Dog Race begins Saturday, March 5, 2016. If your school or library is interested in an Iditarod presentation or Skype session, email me now to get on the 2016 schedule. MUSH!
Borage, you were a movie star… and a very patient soul. I hope there are many moose for you in Heaven. Happy Birthday!
