Spring has sprung

It's official, Spring is here.  The first day of Spring was March 21st.  As we drove home from Horseshoe Bay today I saw bluebonnets (the Texas state flower) all along the highway.  What a beautiful sight it was to see.

I am still on the lookout for a dragonfly.  I still have not seen one yet.  I can't wait until they come out.  If you see one let me know.  I'd love to hear from you.

Here is a link to buy "I Spy a Dragonfly"

You are one click away from buying this book.  It is for children ages 4-8 (however my 9-year-old and all of her friends love it).

The pictures inside the book are full of bright colors that children will love even if they can't read.

The children will love it!  They will also love that in the back of the book there are fun pages to see how many dragonflies you can find and some coloring pages so your child can use their imagination.

Thanks for looking:)

My book came in today!!

I can't stop looking at it.  It is stunning!  It is beautiful!  I am looking at the first hard copy of my book "I spy a dragonfly".  It is more eye-catching than I could have ever imagined.  And it's all because of Diana Evans!!!  She is such a talented artist, who details in this book through her talent, all the beauty that nature has to offer with the vivid colors she chose for this book.  She also did the cover which is so breath-taking!

Amanda was with me.  So we pull into the neighborhood - me still shaking - and Amanda says she wants to stop and get the mail.  I did not want to.  I wanted to get home and stay home, but it was a simple request on her part so I drove past our home down the street to the mailbox to let her get out to get the mail.   

And there is was in a priority mail envelope that I will probably never throw away.....was my book!!!! I opened it and the sight of the book took my breath away!  Also at the mailbox I ran into a very good friend of mine whom I hadn't talked to in awhile.  She was the first to see my book and give me congratulations....but she bestowed a bigger blessing on me than she will ever know.
More on that later.  Right now I need to call Diana and tell her the news about the book!
