My book signing last Saturday was my most memorable one yet. Family that I hadn’t seen for years came to the signing and gifted me a very special pen. I met a lot of amazing kiddos and a sweet little old lady named Catherine. She gave me a beautiful blue clasp pocketbook that she’s had for years. We chatted for quite some time about ideas for future books. She had boat loads of them! All of her ideas included magic and mystery and fun, which are all great ingredients to get children excited about reading. My goal is that all of my books inspire children to use their mighty imaginations. Mama’s Purse does just that, and I am excited about getting some new ideas onto paper and eventually into the hands of eager little readers.
Read today and every day to come because reading is so much fun!
We have been very busy welcoming the newest member of our family–little miss Charlie Blue! I do have several book signing events coming up. In fact, there is one tomorrow (Saturday, April 6th) at the Fairview & Cole Hastings in Boise. I will be signing copies of Mama’s Purse from 4-8 pm. Come down and color a Mama’s Purse coloring sheet with me! I also have free bookmarks and maroon balloons for the kiddos 🙂 Hope to see you there!
Our sweet little Charlie Blue has settled right in at her new home. She loves to play with the kids and her toys, especially her pink bird. 🙂 Crate training and potty training are going better than we expected. She fussed the first few days when we put her in the crate, but she doesn’t throw a fit anymore. 🙂 We put bells by the front door to help with potty training.
Charlie Blue loves her human siblings!
Our five-year-old son enjoys helping with training and taking her for walks around our yard. Our one-year-old daughter isn’t crazy about doggy kisses yet, but we’re sure she’ll come around.
Two babies keep me busy!
The baby and the puppy keep me on my toes because they both want to put everything in their mouths! We are working on limiting her puppy biting and…
