A few weeks ago I was offered the awesome opportunity to speak to the 3rd-5th graders at Newberry Elementary School. Of course I said yes. I was thrilled with the opportunity. But! But, now! Now I must figure out what I am going to say and HOW! 250 plus students are going to be expecting to hear exciting things come from my mouth for 45 minutes. It strikes terror in my heart.
So, I decided I needed a visual aid. Aha! A power point would be great… and I know just the man for the job. 🙂 I have developed my outline including ideas for graphics and today my husband, Bruce has been helping (aka doing it all) with the power point. I am getting exceedingly excited about it. Just watching the story of my book and how it came to be as it builds on the computer screen is an experience I’ll never forget. It just reminds me of what a blessed heritage I have. To have known my grandparents so well, and to have record of their lives in book form and on tape… priceless!
This week is my Grandma, Mildred Jones’ 97th birthday. Not many people my age still have a grandparent living and I sure am glad I’m one of them. Happy Birthday Grandma! I love you.
