A foggy morning in Ocala, which I’m certain will burn off quickly.
I’m at Bellview Middle School today with the very fun Leola LeHew (I love her name) who picked me up at the hotel bright and early and whisk me to the school for a staff breakfast and book signing. I was presented with the “Read To Death” award, which is going up on the wall of my office back at the farm. I’m honored!
I spoke to 1,100 fabulous 6th, 7th, and 8th graders in two sessions. You cannot believe all the things they did at the school to prepare for the visit. They read “Sasquatch” as a One School One Read book and Bigfoot was seen all over the school. They had a door decorating contest, which I had to judge. A very difficult task. All the doors were wonderful, but Leola made me pick one for each grade level and an overall champion. They had a poster contest. Quite a day at a great school. Thank you for inviting me!
