What's new with Ashleigh?

This morning, my husband and I sat down with our 2024 calendar and began planning our vacations for this year. Even though we won't be traveling until July, we have to work around so many schedules (scouts, camp, dance recitals & competitions, school) that we need to start planning now.

Our first decision was which long trip we wanted to take this year. We have a good friend who lives about 1800 miles away (27 hours driving, not including breaks) and a relative that lives 950 miles away (about 15 hours driving). We are thinking of visiting the relative, saving the longer vacation for when our children are ready to start visiting colleges.

We also had to decide which of our favorite vacations we would like to repeat. Fourth of July at the family lake house? Santa's Village in the fall? Is there a specific Six Flags we'd like to visit this year?

We're still working on the details, but we have a general idea of what we'd like to do. Hopefully, by the end of the month, we will have everything booked.

How about you?
When do you start planning your summer vacations?

The Secret of the Magic eyePad
Putney Hicks Inventor Adventures–Book 1

She dreams of becoming an inventor. First, she has to survive middle school…

Putney Hicks just wants things to go right for once. A socially awkward girl dropped among rich kids in an experimental STEM institution, the anxious twelve-year-old can’t seem to see her own potential. But life sprinkles in a surprise when she receives a mysterious tablet housing an advanced, talkative intelligence.

Wondering if the friendly pixie in the device is alien or supernatural, Putney is determined to keep it safe while exploring its possibilities. But when competitive art and science projects lead to an ill-advised bet with a wealthy mean girl, the would-be engineer may be in way over her head.

Will Putney’s mysterious new mentor help her make it through her first week in class?

The Secret of the Magic eyePad is the award-winning first book in the Putney Hicks Inventor Adventures middle grade series. If you like girls in STEM, preteen drama, and clever innovations, then you’ll love Marsha Tufft’s lighthearted tale.
