"Gimme an L-I-B-R-A-R-Y!!"

This is a posting from my school blog (currently in a coma) done two years ago. The good news is that I brought about 9 classes of kids out to see a home llibrary over the last several years, and we had a great time. The bad news is that all fieldtrips have been canceled for the entire year due to complete lack of funding. And if that doesn't bring a tear...

Except for Mugsy (the resident Shih Tzu) biting Murphy's head (well, what would you do if 25 kids barged in and woke you from a sound sleep and then mauled you?????) our fieldtrip to see a walking talking living home library went well. We tried on all the finger puppets, checked out a few dvd's, ate sack lunches, slurped down root beer floats, and had a close encounter with a couple of bad boy bats over in the knitting loft!!!!!! Whew...hope everybody signed the guest book!!
