It’s 8:30 a.m. here in California and I’m just getting ready to drive to Sacramento (about 2 hours from my house). Late last night, when all was packed, I ended up with ten boxes of books. That’s probably way too much for a half-booth, and some boxes won’t even make it to the shelves, but as a teacher I learned early on that it is always better to be over-prepared than under-prepared.
My husband was nice enough to bring home a hand cart from work that I can borrow for the weekend. This will make things so much easier during load-in and load-out. I definitely need to add: 1) hand cart and 2) thoughtful husband to my book fair supply list.
I’m still working on Huck, trying to convince him that a bowling pin is just not a suitable fall centerpiece for our dining room table, but he’s having none of it.
I’ll leave you with one last photo before I go: the back of the bookmobile loaded up with boxes, folding bookcases, and handcart. I’m ready. Wish me luck!
