It was a really hot evening this past Tuesday as Sandee (Sandra Schoger Foster), author of Daddy Will You Play Catch with Me?, and I were chauffeured into the parking lot of a local elementary school. A very small and quaint school. The principal was rather friendly as well as professional. He greeted us and told Sandee what to expect.
Sandee spoke for about ten minutes and then had a Q & A time with the children. They asked amazing questions like; how long did it take to publish the book? Who did the art work? How do you write a book? Many more intelligent questions were asked. Some kids made comments that they liked the cover or they liked to play baseball. It was a fun time for all. More than I expected.
Of course, we did not have enough books for each child (lesson learned) and one boy sat next to me and began to cry. His sister won a book but he went home without one. We shall see what we can do about that.
We've been asked back for the school's Spirit Day. Not quite sure what that is but we accepted. Hopefully by then we will have a few more books in our book bags. It was a wonderful experience and we were blessed by the minute. And as we were leaving a teacher informed us that the link to Catch would be on their school website as well as the individual teachers' pages. The whole evening reminded me that our labor in the Lord is never in vain. Those are my Thursday Thoughts.
