Headed out this morning, bright and early, armed with a thermos of coffee, and left my home in St Paul to visit the students at Minneota Public School (Go Vikings!). It’s the first stop on my tour of SW Minnesota schools.
I always enjoy walking into a school’s media center and seeing my books on display. Not to mention getting students riled up about writing and drawing. We had a fun, full day of presentations, for grades K–6, at Minneota. Here’s some of the students showing off their illustrating skills.
And then, as if I wasn’t exhausted enough after spending the day trying to match energy levels with exited elementary students, I decided to head over to Redwood Falls and hike around Alexander Ramsey Park. It’s the largest city park in MN, and I only had time to cover a fraction of its hiking trails. But since I was in a part of the country that I have never visited, I had to take advantage of the opportunity to see some of the sights.
I’ll be at Reede Gray Elementary School tomorrow.
