. . . we had some drama at the airport . . .
But we survived and landed in Tampa, FL . . .
What's in Tampa, you ask? Why, St. John's school, of course!
I travel with lots of electrical equipment so that I can get stopped all the time at airports. On this day, we had a malfunction and had to resort to using a laptop instead of the universal remote dock with an iPod . . .
But all went well and I spoke to uber enthusiastic, silly and serious grades 1 - 5 . . .
It was also the very first time I read my essay, "Regret," from DEAR BULLY, to an audience . . .
Peepy and I were well-fed in the library . . .
But for Peepy, the highlight was her! Yes, there were Peeps everywhere . . .
Not only were the framed posters Peepy gracing the office, but they were all over the school!
Peepy was determined to find out who was behind it all -- so she channeled her inner-Nancy Drew and followed the trail . . .
And was delighted to see herself on Lisa Strauch's office door!
(Lisa, who is head of the lower school, presented Peepy with a giant gift basket! Um, that would be the other Lisa, not this Lisa. Or even that Lisa.)
Later, Peepy tried to guess the number of Peeps in the jar. She said, 142,197. How many do you think are in there?
(The students who were the closest to 102 won a plush Peep.)
Peepy also hung out with her friends . . .
But the highlight of her visit was seeing her new BFF, John. Does he look familiar?
(Um. To fully admire the totally cool handmade Peepy blanket, turn your computer upside-down.)
Yes, we thought so, too! That's because John is Priscilla's cousin!!! Such a small world.
