My parents have been cleaning out their basement and this weekend they gave me several folders containing school projects from my childhood days.
Its strange and wonderful to read thoughts and stories written by my child self. Apparently I was really into the Easter Bunny. And there seem to be quite a few stories about talking bears. Maybe there's the seed of a picture book idea within these childhood papers.
Based on the page above, it seems that my 9 year old self would be pretty happy with how life has turned out... except for the "Animals Art" shop... haven't quite gotten around to that... yet.
