this week

When I decided to become a storyteller one of the things I thought about was how, when I had kids, I would be able to entertain at their school for them and all their school mates. This morning I get to join the folks at the Carver Elementary School and tell stories for the Kindergarten, First and Second Grade. These shows are even more special to me because I get to join my baby girl and listen to her giggle through my show with her friends. She’s been looking forward to this all last week and excitingly asks me if know what I will tell, which puppets I am going to bring and how long I will stay. Overall, it’s one of the greatest feelings in the world.

Here is the storytelling schedule for this week:

  • Monday: Carver Elementary School @ 10:15/10:45am
  • Thursday: Plympton Library @ 1:30pm - Raising a Reader, Final Week!
  • Friday: Holmes Library @ 1:00pm - Raising a Reader, Week 5
  • Saturday: Plymouth Library @ 2:00pm - TALKING COMICS!

As the last week in October hits it always reminds me just how quick the days pass now. I used to partake in watching the leaves change and take thousands of pictures of the autumn taking over the landscapes. These days I have to think ahead but I take solace in the fact that my children enjoy these days one at a time. I had the fantastic opportunity to tell stories in Mattapoisett last week by an actual bon fire and it truly felt like fall in that moment. It was a moment I haven’t felt in a while so I really let it settle in and take hold of me. It was nice - and the scent of campfire still clings on my sweatshirt - it makes me want to drive around just to look at the fall foliage again.

I am going to be at the Kingston Library this Friday telling my Scary (but not too scary) Tall Tales - so mark it on your calendar and make sure to stop by!
