Me at ALA - hard to believe, but gonna be awesome!

I'ts been a month since I blogged! Bad, bad me! But I have very good reasons . . . really . . . seriously . . .

I made it through Pioneer Trek 2011 as Director with my husband - that has got to be one of the biggest things we've ever put together. 200 people in the wilderness with handcarts in pioneer costumes for 4 days with a portable kitchen, water, porta potties, games, firesides, skits, dances, historical re-enactments, service project, testimony meetings, Handcart Families, Ma's & Pa's, etc! It was mind-blowing the month leading up to it - 10,000 details!

We made it. It was very uplifiting, spiritual, and we saw so many miracles before and during. Truly an amazing experience.

My husband and I came home and crashed and got sick and wrung out 10,000 particles of sand and dirt and I leave tomorrow for ALA in New Orleans!

If you are there, COME TO SCHOLASTIC BOOTH 1439 ON SATURDAY AT 3:00 P.M.!!!

I'm signing THE HEALING SPELL and ARCS of CIRCLE OF SECRETS!!!

I'm excited and nervous! I'm looking forward to meeting lots of cool librarians and authors. Then we get to attend the Scholastic Family Dinner that evening! I'm thrilled. It's like I'm a real author or something. Even though I'm probably the least known author there . . .  but I'll take it!

Even with stomach flu the last two days, and now running around like a maniac to get ready I feel so blessed.
