this week

Just as I thought - last week lived up to all expectations!  I was so happy to see old friends and catch up with all of the people I see annually who is part of the Bridgewater Schools.  I can’t tell you how nice it was to not only see everyone but also to notice how happy everyone was.  Not sure if you out there heard but the George Mitchell school suffered a roof collapse with all the snow piling on it’s roof this winter.  Everyone I talked to said how impressed they were on how the superintendent handled the transition to the middle school.  It was like clockwork - and made as easy as possible.

As for me, I am beginning another super busy week full of shows!  I even see some spring weather ahead for the week so I am all that more excited to be out and about!

    While I enjoy the lazy days with my son - there aren’t too many - my week is filled with shows, workshops and trainings!  My teacher trainings are especially fun because it’s a time that I get to really talk with the teachers and re-live the great days of when I had my own classroom.  I was just at a school recently of a teacher who had taken my training - she told me that it was the best and most useful training she’d ever been to.  She said “rarely do you go to a training and use what you learned the very next day.”  It was so fantastic to hear!

    Final Preschool Building Stories in Kingston is happening this week!  Come on out and check out Wordless Picture Books with me. I have been told that the workshop is chockful of fantastic ideas and at the same time is a blast to attend!

    This is hands down my sister’s favorite cartoon.  I created it so of course I think it’s funny - but she thinks this is REALLY funny!

    this week

    This week is a nice break from all the busy weeks I’ve been having - even though this week is still chock full of Big Ryan goodness! My New Hampshire trip went amazingly well, even with all the cold. It was fantastic to visit Greenfield Elementary once again this year - seeing the students who both remember me and the brand new students seeing me for the first time is such a joy! It’s always a great trip because I get to see my Aunt and stay in her beautiful home. She has plenty of birdfeeders set up and that’s nothing short of glorious for me! I saw a Red Poll for the first time in my life (pictures to follow) and the food was devine! Brockton’s Library first week was hugely attended and I look forward to going back again this week! Make sure to mark your calendars!

    The Preschool Building Stories in Kingston is flowing smoothly now and I am excited to make puppets this week with the group! Pembroke Library continues to have a great turnout and we enter the final week there on Wednesday! Come on out and check out Wordless Picture Books with me.

    Another successful year at the Early Childhood Fair in Kingston!  This year we lucked out with the weather - it was a rainy, dreary kind of day - perfect for coming out to hear stories!  I was able to tell a classic, a favorite of mine, to the great crowd.  Abiyoyo! Thanks to everyone who came out to hear the stories!

    I love getting emails that say things like this:

    Please let me know.  Our student population (particularly the younger ones and their parents are asking if you’ll be back again this year!). ”

    It makes my whole day!

    this week

    One of my mentors once told me that traveling was nice - but your hometown is your bread and butter.  I know what he meant, especially when I do travel overnight away from my home.  This is one of those weeks - another extremely busy week - where I am heading to New Hampshire for a block of shows Thursday going into Friday.  While I’d rather be home, if I have to travel I am glad I’ll be in New Hampshire, one of the more beautiful states.  That will be closing out my week - before that I will be in Brockton for the start of a series of a three week set of shows!  Come on out to see me!

    The second week of Preschool Building Stories in Kingston went much better than the first!  I am looking forward to continuing the workshop there this week.  Pembroke Library had another great turnout and we enter the third week there where we will be making puppets!  Let’s keep our fingers crossed for great weather!

    While the snow is slowly disappearing there is still plenty of time to get out there to have a blast!  This is one of my Wife’s favorite cartoons of mine.
