One of the things I love the most about being my own boss is setting my own schedule, making a work/life balance an easier thing than it might otherwise be. One of my favorite things I've gotten to do this year as a result of this is volunteering with KIPP Strive Academy and The Wren's Nest. If you're a recent reader, this program paired an Atlanta writing professional with a fifth grader to work together to write down a family story from each student. Then the stories were published in a collection and sold at the Decatur Book Festival. The program was enough of a success that it's going to happen again in 2011. If you want to check out this year's book, you can purchase a copy through The Wren's Nest website.
