I'm so sorry. I really hoped to have the new book for you this morning, but it's going to be late today or even tomorrow morning. It's really really close, but some unforeseen glitches are causing a little delay. I hate that. I really do, and I hope you'll bear with me.
Until I return, here's a few little things for you:
Here's my Ryder, doing his very best to be quiet and patient while waiting for his baby cousin to wake up already! Baby Collin came for a visit and my boys nearly came out of their ever lovin' skin waiting to smooch him up.
It must be awful nice to have cousins that love you so.
You can see a couple more photos of baby Collin's smoochy goodness on our Flickr photostream.
It was pretty crazy! At first, the boys were scared out of their gourds. It was SO loud, all those balls hitting the roof, and kinda freaky how quickly it happened. But once they calmed down a bit, they declared it, "the coolest thing EVER!"
But um, remember those herbs and tomatoes? Not sure they're going to make it. They look pretty battered and bruised.
And last, a little sneak peek at the April book. It's coming together really well, and I just can't wait to share it with you. It's BIG, 7 or 8 pages more than the last, and full of fun stuff to do together. I think you're gonna like it.
Almost all of the illustrations were done in watercolor this time, so they are so bright and cheery. There's butterflies and a little excursion to see Japan's cherry blossoms. There's butterfly identification and rainy day experiments.. And there's pie… honestly, how can you go wrong with pie?
So again, I"m sorry for the delay, but I promise I'll be back here with lots of goodies for you just as soon as humanly possible. As always, there will be a sweet Mama Kopp giveaway too, so don't miss that!
See you soon!
