#KatieKnows - SOL, March 16

Today's slice is a quick one after a great morning and Nerdy Book Club lunch in Grand Rapids, followed by a 5 hour drive home.

If you haven't seen the clever spoof Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon did on twitter users and their excessive use of hashtags, you really need to check it out!

But this weekend at MRA, a small group of us began our own hashtag - #KatieKnows.  One of our group that traveled to Grand Rapids is a darling young teacher who is vivacious, adores books, and has a thirst for knowledge.  She also proved to be more aware of her surroundings than those of us old enough to be her mother.

Every time we needed a direction on our road travels, Katie knew what to do.  When we were seeking out rooms for our sessions in the convention center, Katie always knew what to do.  When one of us needed coffee, Katie knew where it was.  When we smelled a wonderful mix of cinnamon and nuts, Katie knew where they were roasting and even bought some for us.  When we were seeking the dinner room, Katie knew where it was.

We relinquished total control to Katie this weekend.  She took great care of us, making sure we showed up where we were supposed to be all the time because #KatieKnew. :)

For more slices, head on over to Two Writing Teachers blog.  Thanks to that wonderful team for hosting the Slice of Life Challenge this month.

  3. Love this post, Karen! Katie is certainly wise. :) Glad I got to see you today for a bit longer and look forward to All Write when we will have even more time to catch up.

  4. That Katie is a keeper. :) So glad you had such a good time.

  5. It is always so helpful to have a Katie in the group. Sounds like she was happy to help, too.
