and that would surprise me because...?

I'm the mother of three boys. So I don't know why I was surprised to find this sitting on my kitchen counter recently...













Hmmm. Tupperware. And inside?



















Rocks. Of course. Who doesn't need a few tupperware containers full of rocks sitting on the counter?

Can't have the rocks going stale! :)

Great comment Peter.

Llama Momma, your site lights my heart with every visit. Thanks.

Sarah said...

LOL! Gotta keep the rocks safe and fresh.

As I look at this picture, I'm reminded that I have no idea where the 3YO actually found that big rock in our yard. Very curious indeed.

Too funny! I used to find my son's felt balls in my pots. And I still don't know where my pyrex 2-cup measure is...nor the top to the blender. Kids.

what's the point of collecting highly valuable rocks without keeping them safe? Oh, and don't ask about where they got them...you don't really want to know, do you?

Love those sweet, creative boys!

By the way, wondering what you would say has been the follow up on your experience in Iowa -- was it two summers ago? Has it shaped your writing in a long-term way?

Llama Momma said...

Charity -- thanks for asking. Has it ever!!

The biggest thing, I think, was my consultation with the instructor on the last day when she said, "Robyn, seriously. Stop taking classes and just write."

The class was on writing autobiographical fiction, which I've done. My YA novel is in the final stages of rewrite. Planning to go to Write-to-Publish in Wheaton to pitch it in a few weeks.
