Enjoy Your Weekend

The Wiglets with Kate DiCamillo and Chris Van Dusen

The Wiglets with Kate DiCamillo and Chris Van Dusen

Hello friends! I hope your Easter weekend is off to a fantastic start. We spent the early part of this week going to a book signing for Kate DiCamillo and Chris Van Dusen at Book People in Austin, one of the best bookstores on the planet. We enjoyed listening to Kate DiCamillo read her latest book A Piglet Named Mercy, and then Chris Van Dusen taught everyone (including Kate!) how to draw one of the Mercy Watson characters, Eugenia Lincoln.

This weekend, we are finishing up some spring projects at home and gearing up for Easter Sunday. I hope you enjoy this holiday time with your family and friends. Here are the best things I found on the internet this week.

  1. The tragic fire at Notre Dame Cathedral has been haunting me all week. Read this article about the Father who saved the relics from the church, this BuzzFeed article about the cathedral’s history, this virtual tour of the cathedral to see its former glory, and see this video that brought me to tears.

  2. A person I didn’t know I wanted to meet until reading this.

  3. Beverly Cleary turns 103.

  4. Martha from the Great British Baking Show got married, and all of her baking friends came.

  5. This video has been playing around our house for Easter this year.

Happy Easter, friends! He is Risen!
