Yesterday morning I talked about books while running a 5K route with kids and parents to raise funds for a new school playground. As we ran through the neighborhoods connected to our school, we chatted about what to read this summer, books borrowed from the public library (since the school library is closed for inventory), and what we love about summertime reading. One fabulous dad was the finish-line announcer, and he called out each person's name as they ran under the sparkly, blue banner. Children and adults high-fived each other under a blue sky (that had been gray and rainy all week). It was a glorious day to run and talk about books.
On my way home, I passed this red-winged blackbird who seems to be telling stories every day from the same dried cattail stalk!
