I can't believe it is already Wednesday again! I love what inspires you Wednesday because I get to share what inspires me and sometimes you get to hear from others about what inspires them!

This week I am totally, wholeheartedly inspired by my author visits that are happening in elementary schools.

I have been able to share my message about dreaming big and huge and have had children begging to take a picture with me (G and E think that is hilarious), students bringing me THEIR stories to read, and asking me for feedback on their work.

You guys, this week has given me hope! Hope that there are so many creative young minds across the world that want to do great things. They have been asking the most fantastic questions like:

How many languages is your book published in right now? How long did the process of writing take? Why didn't you illustrate your own book? Do you like cupcakes? What other stories have you written? Are you famous? And my favorite... Will you be my new friend? Seriously, I wanted to jump up and grab this little kid and say, "Of course I will  be your new friend, buddy!" 

These author visits are truly filling my bucket, but I am not doing it for me or to sell books. Seeing the looks on the faces of the kids when they see that it is possible to dream big and huge and become anything you want to be in this world is all of the payment I need!

What inspires you? Would you like to be a guest writer on WIYW?

Ok, maybe that is an exaggeration. It doesn't feel far off, though!

We had a pretty exciting snow day at our house! This morning when checking my email I got a message that my book was live and on sale on Amazon! I had thought this was going to happen on Thursday so needless to say I was super excited to find out that it had happened earlier than anticipated. If you would like to order you can find it on Amazon by clicking on the link below. If you do order we would love to have you leave a review on Amazon after you read it!

On to the rest of our snow day...

Grace's breeding heifer for this year.

This morning we made sure all of the animals were tucked in and happy.

I love this pig! What do you think she is thinking? Any caption ideas?

The girls made several batches of slime, made their own lunch in the air fryer (they were hungry and I was working on scheduling author visits), and played with Grace's new cat. Thank you, air fryer, for making lunch easy.

This evening we ventured back out to check on everyone again.

Baby Mouse is doing great!

My chore helper did a lot more playing than helping, but she is pretty cute so I let her get by with it. 😉

What did you do on your snow day? Be honest, do you let your kids make slime? We had a ban for a long time, but now they are back to doing it again. How much snow did you get at your house?
