Got into Sitka late last night. Spoke to 6th an 7th grade at Blatchley Middle School. Two groups of great kids.
In the afternoon I did a Rural District Audio Conference. Kids called in with questions from l over the state, which was very cool.
After this I did a program at the Kettleson Memorial Library, then dinner. Busy day, but a lot fun with “spirited” readers. The Alaska Spirit of Reading event was put together by two wonderful librarian’s Ginny Blackson and Kari Sagel. Read more about the event here. The dino to the left is guarding the children’s collection at the library.
I forgot to mention this, but Marie has embarked on the “final” remodeling of our 30+ year old house. The downstairs bathroom and the downstairs family room. She’s been shopping for tile and fixtures for weeks. This weekend when I left for Alaska, no sooner had I headed north she started gutting the bathroom. John Riko, super contractor, Steve the electrician, and Ury the tile guy have her back. Looks like the downstairs bathroom is gone.
