My visit to Roberts Elementary School

Today, I visited Roberts Elementary School. I did my Power Point presentation for grades 3, 4 and 5. We had so much fun and it was great despite the threatening weather.

At my last presentation, the WCTV news crew showed up. They filmed my talk and interviewed me after it was over. Thanks to WCTV for stopping by! The funniest line of the day came when they showed up with a camera.

When a girl in the front row saw the news crew, her eyes got wide and she looked at me. She said, "Oh my gosh. You even have paparazzi following you!" I explained who they were and that didn't make her any less excited, LOL.

The kids asked a zillion smart questions and I enjoyed visiting the school. Thanks again to Bill and Erma for all of their hard work.

As I was getting ready to leave, Erma (the media center specialist) handed me an envelope. Inside, were letters that some of the kids had written to me after the presentation. So. Cute. Some of the letters encouraged me to keep buying cotton candy Lip Smackers, which I'd told them was my fave. Others had phone numbers and email addresses for me to say hi. One told me to only eat cereal from now on after I told the "I set my microwave on fire before" story. :)

Thank you ALL for the amazing letters and drawings. You guys rock!

I want you to come to my school. D: You should come. It is far away. And it's a high school. And it's a Catholic school. But still. xD
