It has been a VERY busy month - from shows every day of the week to the birth of our fourth child, Viktor Lucian Crews (pronounced Veeeektor Looooshun, in a Transylvania accent), to many, many hours worth of traveling, but it has been a BLAST!!! Below I am sharing a few comments, photos, and links related to some of the most recent school programs, as well as one or two new baby pics. :)
First up is the link to Muller Road Middle's blog about the Poe program they hosted today (10/22). I love the collage of pictures that they put together. Always a fun time!
Pony Express: "Nevermore" program by Chad Crews:
They also had a nice post of the SCASL Facebook page, which I shall quote here:
"Chad Crews brought his Nevermore program to Muller Road Middle on October 22nd as a follow-up to last year's "Authors of Mystery and Horror" program. Poe books and everything "magic" flew off the shelves as a result!"
Here are a few photos from Muller Road's performances:
|I love this shot of the crowd - I think this was during "The Tell-Tale Heart."|
|A classic trick with a Poe twist to it...|
Second, we have a comment by Ms. Kellie Justice, the media specialist at Franklin County High, regarding my most recent visit to her school with my "Something Wicked This Way Comes: A Shakespeare Experiment." Ms. Justice has hosted several of my programs over the years, and this is her second time having the Shakespeare program.
"I enjoyed the show immensely. The students enjoyed it as well. They have been begging to read Macbeth. I only have about 3 books in the media center with Macbeth in them and they have all 3 been off the shelf since the show!" - Kellie Justice, Media Specialist, Franklin Co. High
Here is a photo from Franklin County Middle School who hosted my "Authors of Mystery and Horror 2.0" program this week. One of my favorite pics ever!
|This may end up as a headlining picture on the blog and website - love it!!!|
|A lovely display designed by Ms. Clack.|
|The sign at the bottom says, "The original grumpy cat." Classic.|
|Very, very pretty sunrise over the mountains in Tiger, GA.|
After taking in the sunrise, I turned around and saw that it had stopped sprinkling while noticing this:
|Yep, that is a rainbow which you can see even with my phone camera...and to the right of it is a second, smaller rainbow!|
Two rainbows...and after the shows that morning they were still there, only in two different places. It was pretty amazing if I say so myself...and I do!
Ok, it's getting late and I have to be on the road by 5am tomorrow - so here are a few baby pics and then it's bedtime! Enjoy!
|The many faces of Viktor Lucian (pronounced Veeeektor Looooshun, with the aforementioned Transylvania accent)|
|Yep, they were fanning Viktor to cool him off. Toby (Tobias Kane - see previous post on HIS name story) is extremely excited about the new baby.|
|The kiddos made their mommy a homemade sign. Those two boys (Grady and Toby) look up to no good.|
