TAILS from Estes

Kentucky Greetings, WoodyWatchers! We are inching closer to Christmas every single day! Our family has been so busy with school visits and book signings. We can only imagine how Santa Claus feels!

Last Wednesday,we spent the day and evening at Estes Elementary in Owensboro, KY. Mrs. Kristy Lovett, the Media Specialist, (see Photo 1) worked oh so very hard at planning the perfect day and evening for us! It is always exciting to walk in a school and see the walls decorated with our faces! The students had colored pictures of us. This one particular picture immediately caught our eye. I had to find out who colored that masterpiece! After doing some investigating, I learned that Shane had produced that work of art! We knew our illustrator, Paul Brett Johnson, would love Shane's interpretation! Shane definitely has a future in art!

Many of the classes had been following Dog Gone Wild. We signed their scrapbooks, answered their questions, and loved hearing their favorite parts. It seems everyone got a kick out of what I had packed in my backpack for the camping trip. Who knew packing pupscicles could be so funny???

I better scoot. We returned home late last night from Liberty, KY and are leaving again for Owensboro again. We have been there so much lately that I think we need a post office box! Tomorrow will be our last school visit until January. Maybe during the Christmas break I can get my list for Santa perfected!

Have a great day! Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!
