Wrapping up

Today and most every day for the next week, I will be helping the biggest of my little people squeeze every last ounce out of their school year. Lately it's all about the celebrating and the cherishing.

There is plenty to honor: great friends, creative teachers and a warm school community top the list.

Nine months ago, in celebration of beginnings, I posted three back-to-school letters. I'm going to bookend the school year by sharing them again, along with a little something-something extra.

Dear Doodlebug Dear Rascal Dear Ms. Preschool Teacher

As some of you locals know, my letter to Rascal was selected to be a part of the Listen to Your Mother: Austin show, a stage production that gathers local writers to celebrate Mother's Day. The show, which took place April 30, was hosted in five cities nationwide. It was an incredible experience! The videos are now online and I would love for you to check them out and tell us what you think!
