Just Had to Share

I had first grade conferences last night for my seven-year-old daughter, (the oldest of my four) and her teacher told me, "she's a writer."

YAY! How much did I love hearing that? A lot! In fact, I might just say it again. She's a writer.

Apparently she spends any free time she has writing stories. In fact, she told me she's working on a chapter book.

:) :)

Also, don't forget, Alex Cavanaugh's launch party for CassaFire is next Tuesday! Yay for that, too. :) It's not too late to sign up, just click on the link above. You could win a copy of the book.

Oh, and one last thing, go sign up for WiP: The Movie. It's going to be fun!

Have a great day everyone!

  10. In first grade, my teachers expressed concern to my parents that they feared I'd never like reading or writing.

    Nowadays, that's almost all I do.

    1. Oh that's funny! In kindergarten my teacher asked my mom if I had been exposed to paper and pencil. (I had, of course, just had no interest.) It's funny how things turn out. :)

  14. How fantastic!

    I felt the same at my 12 year old's parents evening - fantastic feedback in English (cue me beaming all the way home), and music (cue my hubby the muscian being pretty happy too). I know we should have been equally interested in the history and geography, but... it's just not the same, is it?

    1. It really isn't. :) I must admit, I stink at geography.
