In a previous post, I mentioned that @kwamealexander pretty much performed a little show for us along with his friend Randy at the #iowareadingconference. Well, this is Randy Preston. I don’t want to call him the #hypeman or #sidekick because he’s plenty #talented in his own right. Randy is a #singersongwriter and a former #educator. Any fans of #kwamealexander ’s #book Solo? Do you remember the #music / #songs in there? Randy wrote them! So he of course had to sign my copy of #Solo (you can see I’m holding it on the top of my book pile). Thanks for coming to #iowa , Randy! #randypreston #singer #songwriter #storyteller #performer #elateacher #readingrockstars #iareads #2019literacyconference #teachersofinstagram

Woo hoo! Hey, #students ! And #readers of #yalit ! And #teachers who are going to be so jealous! 😜 Look who I got to meet today! Kwame Alexander, the #bestsellingauthor of #books in #verse The Crossover, Rebound, Booked, Solo, and Swing! He’s also the #author of #childrensbooks like Surf’s Up and The Undefeated. He’s written prose #novels , as well, but I especially #love him as a #poet. His books were always checked-out from my classroom library; while being (much appreciated!) hits with the boys (some of them the so-called #reluctantreaders ), there are plenty of girls that love Kwame’s books, as well. I’m so happy that my students are enjoying his books - and even MORE happy that I got to meet him, get all my #kwamealexander books signed by him, and hear him speak - actually, see him perform. He and his friend Randy pretty much put on a show, complete with jokes, singing/music, stories, reciting #poetry , and Kwame #reading from his books - Did you see in my stories that Kwame used my copy of his #book Swing to #read aloud?! 😱🤗🥳 #woohoo #thatbookisblessed #fangirling #readingrockstars #iareads #iowareadingconference #2019literacyconference #booksigning #readingteacher #teachersofinstagram @kwamealexander , thanks for coming to #Iowa ! (Did you notice he’s reppin’ Des Moines in his Raygun t-shirt? 🤗😂 @raygunshirts )

Who wants a loose meat sandwich and malt? The restaurant from the TV show Roseanne was based on this place. Founded during the Great Depression, a portrait of FDR hangs on the wall. Both nephews approved despite the long drive for lunch. #iowa #canteen #canteeninthealley #loosemeatsandwich #sogood

Because I’m a history nerd, I forced my family to make a pit stop at this historic house. James B. Weaver was the Populist Party’s candidate in the 1892 presidential election. He won approximately 3 million votes. #historynerd #iowa #jamesbweaver #populistparty

A beautiful sunset to finish off our day of driving. We made it to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, by 10:30pm. It is good to get into a comfy bed after 14 hours of being on the road. ⁣ ⁣ 🚙 Overall, it was a really smooth and easy trip. I’m super proud of hubby because he doesn’t usually like to drive such long stretches... He did amazing, and of course, I don’t have a valid license yet, so he drove the whole way!! ⁣ ⁣ We are looking forward to making memories over the next two weeks. It is always good to see family and catch-up 💕 #USARoadTrip

Fixed a bit of rust on this coupe this evening, so I should be able to start on the boxes now. I’m bending up most of the main cage tomorrow. This will be my first inch and a half cage. In the past it’s always been an inch and three quarter main cage. I’m gonna try to do inch and a half main cages from here on out. Just gives everything that much more room. #shiomigarage #midwest #iowa
