One of the BEST things about the writing Slice of Life Story Challenge is the source of inspiration from so many other writers. This is from Erin Baker’s “Hello” post on Day 1 found here. (Neither snow nor deer can keep this intrepid slicer from posting but computer troubles made me feel like Lemony Snicket yesterday!)
Flexible, Competitive, Passionate
Lover of books, writing, and professional development
Who wonders if I’ll ever figure out how to just say “no” when life gets busy
Who fears that I will miss the students and teachers when I move on to the next chapter in my life
Who feels happy when I’m learning beside, with, or from students.
Who cares about the rights, quality of life, and the many needs of ALL the people residing in this great country
Who dreams of writing a book, telling family stories and yet continuing to promote literacy.
Who resides in Unionville, Iowa.

How embarrassing! I lost my post and it was NOT one that I had composed and saved anywhere but in wordpress. Hmmm. . . thoughts for future work.
That post was based on Erin Baker’s “Since Last March” found here.
Since Last March
Since last March, I’ve been to Kentucky.
Kentucky for the birth of my grandson,
Kentucky for many holidays, 4th of July, Labor Day & Christmas,
Kentucky for the crawling, first tooth, and first steps (some via Skype).
Since March, my “baby” turned twenty five.
Twenty-five and a first time dad,
Twenty-five and an expert with bottles and burping,
Twenty-five and changing those diapers.
Since last March, I’ve said good-bye.
Good-bye to doubts and questions,
Good-bye to agreeing to impossible tasks,
Good-bye to questionable practices,
Good-bye to activities that waste precious time better spent on reading and writing!
Since last March, I’ve said hello.
hello to friends who I’ve met face to face,
hello to slicers and bloggers from #tcrwp, #ila15, #ncte15, #g2great ,
hello to books, read with friends and with kids!
It’s time to write!
