Cape Cod and Friends

I am on the Cape with dear friends.  Dear is an understatement.  We have been together for 25 years, since our children were little.  Now, we have grandchildren, and our adventures keep on going.  I wouldn’t trade these ladies for a million dollars.

Here is an old and a new photo:

I will be away for a few days, but will catch up with my fellow bloggers soon.


About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty 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 am highlighted in the the new edition of Jim Trelease's bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at both the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, and the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital.

  1. Have a wonderful reunion, Jennie! Take also time for some rest. Best wishes, Michael

    • Jennie says:

      Just got back home, Michael. It was wonderful. With old friends, we always laugh. Laugher is the best medicine. Perhaps it is old friends who are the best medicine?

  2. Who is the guy in the new photo, Jennie? Hummmm?

    • Jennie says:

      Hi John. He is the son of one of the Mermatrons, my longtime group of friends. Yes, we have a name…. That photo was taken at his wedding. He was the head writer for the TV show Elementary, and now his new TV series has begun. It was fun to watch it together. Well, it was really fun to be together. You can’t have enough laughing or wine, right? 🙂

    Hurrah for time on the Cape with loved ones!!!

    • Jennie says:

      Yes!!! Will, our kids grew up together in a pretty sophisticated children’s chorus. They were singing opera before high school. I learned so much about music during those years. The little kids would often sing Benjamin Britten songs, which became my favorite. Well, these kids are our link, and we have been fast friends ever since. The power of music, right?

    If you’re in Cotuit, look for my footprints in the sand…Enjoy yourself!

    • Jennie says:

      I wish the weather had been beach-friendly. We were in Centerville, right on the big lake, and not far from the beach, so no Cotuit this year. We always have a grand time, just like your Bar Chronicle friends do. Thank you, Steve.

      • srbottch says:

        Great. I need to get those guys together. I’ve spent too much time writing about ‘the frog, the hog and the dog’ and forgetting them. Sounds like you had a great time. Take care.

      • Jennie says:

        Yes, you do need to get your Bar Chronicle guys together! Like you, I do plenty of writing. BUT, those times with your best group of friends is powerful and uplifting, for all of you. We had a wonderful time!
