Join us each weekend for Celebrate This Week with Ruth Ayres.
When we pause to celebrate, we find the joy.
A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember.
1. Irene Latham's Visit!
So much joy squeezed into 25 hours!
Lunch at Pike Place Market
Meeting Irene's friend, Sarah
A stop at Island Books
School library meet and greet
A stop by our public library
Sharing pocket parks, a sunset, and bench time together
A shared picture book read aloud
IMS and two morning presentations to 6th graders
Special meeting with members of Books, Brownies, & Beyond
Lunch and a jigsaw path to Irene's afternoon carpool connection
2. October themed wrappers for Babybel cheese
and an Island Books window celebrating October
Listen! The wind is
rising and the air
is wild with leaves.
We have had our
summer evenings, now
for October eves!
3. Poetry Camp in Bellingham on Saturday!
Early arrival and an informal "pre-conference" session
with Brod Bagert, Kathi Appelt, Carmen T. Bernier Grand,
and new poetry friends, Tammy and Leonie.
Brad serenaded us with songs and recited poems.
My favorite: "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening."
I hope he'll do a You Tube video.
Everyone should hear his soulful recitation of this Frost poem.
Watch for more details about poetry camp in a future blog post.
