May 28, 2008

Just a few things:

James and the Giant Peach is a FABULOUS book to read aloud.

Crazy hair day is fun but exhausting. We did this "do" twice before we got it in this "acceptable" state. Tears were flowing first try (he insisted on a mohawk, but it wouldn't stand up) and we had to wash, dry, and retry and were half an hour late to school because of it. And then it took 3 shampoos to get it all out after school and before the baseball game (he couldn't get his hat on over it).

Summer is coming, summer is coming, summer is coming. I keep telling myself this as I sit here in my fleece, freezing.


  1. Awhhh, what a precious photo - that head of thick colorful hair on such a wee lad, he looks like he's ready for his own band :-)

    You're such a good mom...


  2. James and the Giant Peach used to be one of my favorite read alouds when I taught younger grades. Such great cliff hangers that the kids don't want you to stop reading and are sure to ask for more the following day.

    Love Luke's do.

  3. how awesome is that!!?? (not the struggles, just the end result!)
