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:

Love





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.
