So, hi there. How's it going? Great, great...
OK, enough chit chat.
There's this thing I've been wanting to tell you about all summer, and I haven't had a chance because the Fates smiled on us and then basically mooned us, and the upshot is we're moving. So I lost my mind four weeks ago. And it's freaking hard to find something that tiny, especially when your house looks like Wal Mart and U-Haul had a love child, who then vomited all over your living room.
Anyway, here's the thing. That I've wanted to tell you about. You know, that I mentioned in the last paragraph. Honestly, please try to keep up; I'm a busy woman.
As you know, I love stories. I love to tell stories, I love to hear stories (unless they're about what you dreamed last night, in which case I am likely to strangle you with your own nightgown), and I love to write stories. The wonderful thing about MY stories is they are ALL true -- you know, right up to the point where I'm just making crap up. But until then, my stories are TOTALLY true.
My darling friend, Carol Rice, is the Owner, Operator, and all around Swell Gal behind this very cool company called "Cherish Bound."
Cherish Bound is a storytelling, storywriting, storybook producing company -- and YOU are the author.
Every summer, Carol offers a special writing-camp type program for kids, sort of a way to get your kids talking about their lives and experiences and putting them some place permanent and awesome. So a trip to the beach, a week with grandma, an overnight campout with friends -- all these can be documented by your kids, and Cherish Bound will provide all the support (like how to write the story) and then turn your child's story into a book.
They will totally ROCK the "What I Did Last Summer" brag-off that first day of school.
You really need to check this out. The entire program is just $28, and it takes your kids from start to finish.
Not only that, Carol has some amazing story-producing programs and systems over at her website. She just gets it, you know? She understands what I've been preaching forever: Everyone has a story, and those stories need to be told.
So, you gonna let those kids send your power bills into national debt territory by standing in front of an open fridge, whining about being hungry? Or are you going to invite them to WRITE about standing in front of that open fridge, whining about being hungry?
Hel-LO?? It's a YES-brainer. Imagine: Your kids will be thinking, creating, engaging. In JULY!!

Oh, and you can thank me by coming over with your magnifying glass and helping me find my brain.
C'mon! I'd do it for you...
