Apparently, Phyllis realized that April Fools Day was sneaking up on her, so she decided to ramp up the visit speed. My head is spinning! In the two days since I last posted, she has popped up all over the place and you won't want to miss any of her adventures or the truly awesome posts by her hosts even if it makes your head spin too!
I'm just going to make you a little list so it will be convenient :)
Phyllis Arrived In Maine to visit with Heather N. and her family. More to come...
Phyllis Visited The Standing Stones at Avebury in the UK with Rebecca... and her 7 children! (These are 2 separate and different links, and the second one has video reviews by Rebecca's adorable, British-accented kids!)
|Phyllis with Rebecca's clan at Avebury, UK|
Phyllis Toured Auckland With Diane.
|Phyllis in New Zealand!|
Phyllis Visited Knoxville, TN with Donna.
|Phyllis sits in with The Rowing Man :)|
|Phyllis enjoys recess with The '49ers!|
AND, if that wasn't enough to make you dizzy, she is currently headed for Vermont, another location in Washington, Australia, and Birmingham UK, AND we are still waiting for her to show up in Italy... apparently she either took an undisclosed side trip or a very long nap somewhere... we're hoping she'll emerge at some point!
That was in the last 2 days! Hence the head spinning!
Anyone else ready for a nap? At least it's Wednesday and we have chocolate :)
Now then, onto our Would You Read It!
Today's pitch comes to us from Terri, who has been an elementary school nurse as well as a pediatric/neonatal nurse for over 34 years and is currently working on acquiring and revamping an old ambulance to bring on school visits so kids can learn what equipment is in an ambulance and what happens when paramedics arrive. It just so happens to go along with her book ideas.
Working Title: First Aide For First Grade
The Pitch: Mrs Fox is teaching first aide to the class. Charlie doesn't want to listen but his best friend is listening with both ears and it is a good thing. After the lesson, the boys run to the playground to play. Zip, Zap, Zing....and Ouch. Who will help Charlie when he is hurt at recess?

And I am going to try to catch up with that globe-trotting groundhog... after my nap :)
