Sunset at the Cape

Together with friends at the Cape.

Every year for the past 25 years.

Life is good.  Feeling blessed.


About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty-five years. This is my passion. I believe that children have a voice, and that is the catalyst to enhance or even change the learning experience. Emergent curriculum opens young minds. It's the little things that happen in the classroom that are most important and exciting. That's what I write about. I was a live guest on the Kelly Clarkson Show. I am highlighted in the seventh edition of Jim Trelease's million-copy bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital, and the Massachusetts State House in Boston.

    Ohhhh, so beautiful. You made me homesick. Where on the Cape? Brought your rod ‘n reel? Enjoy!

    • Jennie says:

      Centerville, close to Hyannis. No, we didn’t bring rods and reels, just wine. 😀 This group is much like your bar chronicles buddies.

        Funny, but that must be a great group. When I was a kid, my dad and I spent weekends at the Cape catching strippers and blues, primarily. We had a hot spot in Cotuit. A friend joined us and we sleep in the big station wagon, cook off the tailgate, sell our catch to a fish market along the Canal, play a little golf on Saturday, head back to Worcester after fishing Sunday morning, but made sure to stop at the Howard Johnson near one of the Canal bridges (is it still there), and watch the Red Sox that afternoon while resting and bragging about our catches. What a great time of my life.

      • My family had a ritual stop at Howard Johnson for ice cream. (That was back when an ice cream cone was a scoop, not a pint.

      • Jennie says:

        Wonderful memories! And, yes it was a scoop back then. 🙂

      • Jennie says:

        Wonderful memories, Steve. 😀

      • srbottch says:

        Thanks, Jennie. I sometimes think I spend too much time on memories. You can tell by some of my stories. I’m working on a memory story now. Be out soon! 😉😊👍

      • Jennie says:

        There is never “too much” time for memories. I love your stories, Steve. I can’t wait for your memory story. 🙂

      • srbottch says:

        It’s ‘cookin’. Just needs a bit more stirring and TLC. In a day or two.
