Okay, so last blog had us dining with Hillbillies and talking about writing to high school students. Well, we also were honored to be the guest speaker at the Kosair Children's Hospital American Girl Fashion Show fundraiser kick-off!
It took place at Barnes and Noble and WOW! was there a lot of fun . . .
Peepy saw her American Girl doll friends getting pampered, so she insisted on getting the full treatment, too . . .
A record number of over 250 turned out . . .
And look! There was even a brave boy in the crowd!!!!

The next day it was off to Girl Scout Headquarters to teach a couple of writing workshops . . .
Peepy did some exploring and came up with a kayak and a pile of mattresses that she said was from The Princess and The Pea . . .
(Now my Peep is convinced she is a princess.)
We taught two groups of girls. This is what the room looked like before everyone arrived . . .
This is what is was like when it was filled with two groups talented young writers . . .
And here are the writers at work . . .
Of course, Peepy was hard at work, too. After all, someone had to watch over the snacks!!!
