Taking a walk in my neighborhood this season, one sees all kinds of silly yard decorations.  In fact, we have a frog with a Santa hat in ours.  This Santa in an airboat with a duck driver caught my eye.  The propellor actually turns.   Here’s another haiku. Number 24 for haiku-a-day in December.



In the early fall, flood waters claimed many homes here in South Louisiana.  My third grade student Jacob’s was one of them.  He wrote a story about the flood.  I contacted Peter Reynolds about Jacob’s story, and he published it in his magazine for kid authors and illustrators, Hutch.  Jacob’s sister, Emily (6th grade), drew the illustrations.  An exciting collaboration!  I celebrate Jacob and Emily’s first publication!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!
