Goosebumps x 2 and foreshadowing?

Thank you so much, Marthasville Elementary, for allowing me to read our book Mommy, How Many Numbers Are There? to you today! Your enthusiasm, wonder and appreciation gave me goosebumps!

So why the Goosebumps x 2? Well, as if I wasn't already on Cloud 9 after doing my very first official school reading, as I was trying to pull out of the school parking lot today, left blinker on to go back home, trying to make a left with this Hwy D detour due to the bridge being closed (my fellow Mathasville-ites -- OMG, Freudian slip? I was trying to type fellow "Marthasville-ites".... seriously. I'm keeping that!)... anyway, I was trying to make a left and a huge truck was heading my way with a line of cars behind it. "Oh, great," I said to myself, "How long am I going to have to wait now?" The huge truck's left blinker turned on. It's pulling into the school.... hmmmm.... this huge truck kindly waved me on to turn left before it pulled in... a closer look.... it was a Scholastic Books truck letting me out.

My dream. Yep. Oh, Jack and I would LOVE for our book to be available through Scholastic! A dream, a dream... working on it. This reminds me of one of my favorite quotes:
"Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning."

Thanks again, Marthasville Elementary! I'm in the process of booking another 4 readings. Check out the calendar in the right column to see if your school is listed... can't wait to meet all you kiddos!

I've heard from a couple parents - and several of the children themselves - that the reading went over BIG! The kids LOVED it!
