Who's that cat?

Good morning, it is Wednesday.

Yesterday was Dr. Seuss's birthday. Yesterday was also Jack and Avery's 2nd birthday. How cool would it be to share a birthday with Dr. Seuss? It will forever be read across America day on Jack and Avery's birthday. Hopefully Jack and Avery had a nice birthday and maybe even read a Dr. Seuss book or three!

At our school last night was a very well attended program. Tons of kids showed up, from preschoolers to a few middle school kids. Fun activities were available to them in the gym, books were read, books were given out, toys were given out, green eggs and ham served, and fun activities for all. Even a chance to get your picture taken with The Cat In The Hat! Maren also helped out with the preschool activities and such. The reading was different this year with readers in corners and such, so Maren did not have to read to the entire world while 20 other activities went on behind her. It was a nice set up this year!

Yes, I was The Cat again this year. The pictures were taken with a school camera on a tripod, but I did get someone to snap this photo with my camera of Lillie and me. After this shot, Lillie quickly ditched me to hang with old friends and enjoy all the festivities. I think more kids will remember me for being The Cat than actually working with them on writing, word study, and math!
See you tomorrow.
