Fiona is ending up her week as Mrs. Schumacher's first grade Featured Friend. This time honored tradition is a BIG deal in our house!! Featured Friend means that you get a really cool board that you fill out with all kind of things about you-pictures, drawings, etc. On Monday the board is taken in and shared with all of the other first graders-they get to compliment and ask questions! On Tuesday, Derek went in and read a Story favorite: The Boy Who Was Raised by Librarians. Mrs. Schumacher informed me that Derek is "a natural" in the classroom!! Wednesday Henry and I made a special trip in for show and tell. The kids thought it was HILARIOUS that Henry eats crayons!! My personal favorite was the little boy (who was petting Henry's belly at the time) who asked me if Henry was a boy dog or a girl dog? Ahh to be in first grade again. Thursday was a wash out (literally)! Uncle Tim (a.k.a. the recycle man) was to bring his cool recycle truck as a show and tell but it was pouring down rain. Then on Friday, Fiona was treated to a special lunch out with Mrs. Schumacher at the Bone Student Center. This is one of the billion things that makes our school so special!! Fiona felt VERY special all week long!! It was wonderful.
The photos below are from our visit to see Fiona on Thursday-Henry basked in the attention and LOVED all of the belly rubs-he has no shame!!
