On Thursday, July 5th, my husband will be donating his kidney to his younger brother.
Four of my old fifth grade students (who are now going into seventh grade) came over this week for a mini-writing camp. These girls are not only enthusiastic writers (and hilariously fun), but super talented. Way more talented than I was at that age! I’ve loved sharing advanced writing techniques with them.
Colorado and the fires. My publishing house, my agent, and some writing friends live in Colorado Springs. Praying for their safety and for all the heroic firefighters.
We are the proud new owners of a Beta fish named Tipsy. Or Sally. Brogan hasn’t made up his mind yet. Last night, I caught him feeding her goldfish crackers and markers.
All the planning, all the time, all the energy was completely worth it. We raised one third of our adoption expenses at our fundraiser last weekend. So incredibly grateful to everyone who helped and participated!
My husband is nearly a perfect match and Brett gets a new kidney! So excited to see him healthy and freed from dialysis. I keep telling Brogan that his daddy is a hero.
Let’s Talk: What are your cares, concerns, and celebrations this week? I love it when you share!
In celebration of Independence Day, and because we’ll be in the hospital, I won’t be blogging next week. Hope you have a happy Fourth of July!
