Yay! It’s Friday! This is my first “silly picture” for my blog. I love it. Today I spent the morning with the students at Florida Mesa Elementary, my last school in Durango. I spoke first wih the little kids, and then with the big kids. Believe it or not, these are the big kids. We had a good time discussing how it’s possible to use your talents to make a difference in your family, school, or your town before you’re even allowed to vote. I think they really got the message. Lots of them were curious about the Children’s Eternal Rainforest in Monteverde, Costa Rica. That’s the rainforest that inspired me to write my first book. Working together, kids all over the world were able to protect over 54,000 acres! Thank you, Florida Mesa!
