I'm still here!

I apologize for not keeping up with this blog very well. My "promises" for the new year include more attention to writing and sharing schooly stuff here. 

Speaking of writing, I took a leap of faith and joined a writer's group. I went to my first meeting a few weeks ago and felt like I had met a bunch of old friends. It was amazing! We talked and ate and even had a writing exercise. It was fun!

The group, Red Dirt Writers, is having a poetry contest this month and I entered two poems. One of them I included in this blog post and the other is this one:


Dononvan Devereaux loves blowing the

Pencil shavings off the counter

After they collect around the sharpener.

Kaidence Carter loves sharpening

Her flowered pencils

And Dononvan Devereaux

Gisselle Goosby loves borrowing

Sheldon Smith’s pencils and

Giving them to Kaidence.

Sheldon Smith loves reading books,

Taking AR tests and collecting pencils

From the librarian as prizes.
