We just got back from a great trip to Effingham, Illinois, where we talked to schools about the issues in The Fat Boy Chronicles and screened the movie this past Saturday. Everyone in the town was so wonderful to us. Needless to say, we had a great time. But it was cold!
3 below zero one morning. But the snow was nice. In driving back, we saw miles of white fields with colorful barns and unmoving cows and horses. Next week, we will be speaking at the Wisconsin State convention of reading teachers. Can't wait for more cold weather.
