  1. There. I am all caught up with your podcasts. Now I have to wait until next week for the next one! For a show that almost wasn’t, this one was pretty darn good.

  2. Hi Amy!
    I am glad you did a podcast this week instead of skipping it. It was great to listen to while I moved books around in my library getting reading for homeschooling.
    Insectlopedia, the children’s poetry book by FLorian has wonderful memories for our family. We have some memorized and they are so special to us. They taught my older son that walking stick insects existed. He then saw one, one day, in our yard. You would not believe how observant a person would have to be to have seen that, yet he did (back when he was five years old).
    Glad there is a contest to inspire us to upload scans to Flickr. I plan do to the Sketch Crawl on my own. Now I need to go sign up for the Flickr group.
    Thanks again!
