Glorious days of doing nothing, of playing with your friends, or of learning a new computer game, or of time spent pondering what school will be like after the summer break, have come to an end.
Did you have a fantastic summer, or was it just so, so?
What was the most exciting thing you did this summer? Was it a book you read, or an event you attended, or maybe you climbed Mount Everest and gazed at the world from above. Whatever you did, I would love to hear about it?
My most exciting moment came when I went zip lining with my 13 year old grandson. I guess I didn't want him to think I was just an old lady who was out of shape. The worst part about the zip lining turned out to be the climb to the top of the ski hill to be hooked onto the zip line. I was so out of breath, by the time I arrived at the top of hundred of stairs, that I was glad to just hang in the air and catch my breath again.
Jean Horst is a mom and grammy living along the sandy shores of Lake Huron in the summer. The rest of the time, when I'm not travelling to get new ideas for children's books, I live in Waterloo, Ontario Canada. I love writing kids books. My reward is seeing the smiles on the faces of children.
