Apparently, Marie and I were a bit on the tired side last night after getting back from Nevada. Asleep by 8:00. Up at 5:30 with more than nine hours of shuteye resulting in a very perky day for both of us.
Beautiful sunrise this morning. I love to wake up in time to see the sunrise, although during the winter here in Oregon (on the west side of the mountains) being able to see the sun come up is rare because of the cloud cover.
I was supposed to be flying to Baltimore today for a school visit tomorrow, but I got a “snow day” due to all the snow they’ve had there in the past few weeks. The visit was moved to later this spring so they can make up for the days they lost.
Working on I,Q2. Then a morning Skype visit with a group of students that had read “Peak” at Messalonskee Middle School and their librarian, Liz McMahon in Oakland, Maine. Good group of students with good questions.
Back to I,Q2 until 4:00. Another Skype visit with students at Dr. Phillips High School and librarian Jenny Beyer in Orlando Florida. This was an evening Skype with students and parents. Large crowd. Again, great fun with great questions. I’m looking into other web cast programs that should make these online visits more effective, interactive, and secure. If any of you have a experience with the software and/or web casts please leave a comment here. Before I sign up for one of them I want to see what’s out there and experiment.
After the visit I’m back to I,Q2. I’m wondering if this novel should be called “I,Q Book Two: The Leopard” rather than “I,Q Book Two: The White House” because in it you are going to learn a great deal about Angela’s mom, Malak, and what it’s like to be in her nerve racking shoes.
