Such a gorgeous shot. My husband and I were engaged on Oak St. Beach in the foreground. Thanks for a great reminder of just how beautiful Chicago is.

Why doesn't The White House website have a section for KIDS? If you agree with this, please share in any way you can.

An outstanding 30 minute talk on education.Such a brilliant presenter. In his mind, the core purposes of educations are: 1) Personal 2) Cultural and 3) Economic. If you’re at all involved with or interested in the educational process, this is essential.
 
Sir Ken Robinson, one of the most creative visionaries in the field of education.

Edited highlights from Sir Ken Robinson's talk at Learning Without Frontiers recorded March 16th, 2011, London

After my Google+ Hangout with President Obama, I decided to send him a copy of my manuscript. Here it is, just before I sealed up the box, complete with a monkey's fist keychain (which plays an important role in the plot). Thanks again, Google, for opening the lines of communication between ordinary citizens and political leaders.

Interested in writing for children? I just got back from the 13th annual SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators) conference in NYC. I'm telling you, it's the most incredible and supportive group of professionals you'll ever meet. Check them out. http://www.scbwi.org/

+Christine Wolf very few people here publish, and they are super picky. Most people self publish which can be expensive. If i write i think i will go for ebook options and older children (probably aim at teenagers).
Currently, i am super busy (full time job plus 4 kids), so its my long term plan for when the kids leave home :)
