I love going to work!  Actually, I don’t really even feel right calling it work…this morning the weather was absolutely beautiful and I put the top down on my car and my dog, Courtney, the cutest miniature dachshund in the world and I headed to the office.  I smiled as I looked over at her and her ears were flapping in the wind. 

I received the cutest cards from one of my student’s daughters who I had given her my Fig on a Stick book for her 10th birthday.

Let me share what she wrote…

Thank you soo (yes, she added the extra “o”!) much for the book! You are so funny!  The game (fig on a stick), the chickens, the doll hair salon, cutting the fringe off the jacket.  The book inspired my mom and I to write books about ourselves.

Love, Cassidy

Oh and…uh are you going to write book 2?  Because I wanna know what you do at school. 

P.S. My mom and I laughed sooo hard!!


There is a nothing better than a handwritten letter, (especially from a child)…take a moment and send someone you love a handwritten note…
