This month my sister-in-law and brother-in-law will fly to Ethiopia to bring their son home to their daughter.  They will be a family of four now, and I can't help but think about the overflowing love in that home.

Students - we talk a lot here about how writers find ideas, but never forget this: the most beautiful thoughts grow through love.  What do you love?  Why?  This is terrain you can walk through with a pencil throughout your lifetime, always finding more and more...

Don't miss Sylvia Vardell's interview with Lee Bennett Hopkins on "The Future of Poetry Publishing for Kids" over at Poetry for Children

P.S. - Are there any other kidbloggers out there?  I bet that Jamie Palmer's class would love to find some blog pals.
