A Fun Day at School

National Reading Week was celebrated at the elementary school last week with various activities. Friday was "costume day" where the students and staff dressed as book characters. There were many princesses, Harry Potter's, Fancy Nancy's, Things # 1 & 2 and others. But, I saw only one King Bidgood from the cute children's book, "King Bidgood's in the Bathtub." It is a story about a king who would not get out of the bathtub and had many exciting adventures while there including a battle, lunch with the queen, fishing and more. Therefore, the reason for the bath towel as part of the costume. I concluded if an 8 year old boy was to wear a bath towel to school, I was sending the darkest colored one I could find in the linen closet!

I'll have to look that story up! It sounds fantastic, and I must say he does indeed make a very dapper King!

I love it! What a cutie :-) I can't believe how big he is! He called me today to remind me to make a necklace for his "new girlfriend" :-) That was kind of hard for me to hear! Of course I will though...
