My Special Person

Will's school has a theme for this year - "Readers are Leaders" - which they try to incorporate into various programs throughout the year.

Today was Special Person Day.  I was picked (through a very intense round of 'eeny, meeny, miney, mo' against Dan) to be Will's person today.

He decided he needed to look extra-spiffy and pulled out the red puppy dog bow tie.  Good choice!

We met up in the school library and were able to pull out as many books as we could read in an hour...in between bites of chocolate chip cookies and muffins :) Yum!

We started off with Dinosaur Days (a new favorite now and I was instructed to see if Amazon had it available), followed by Will reading to me One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.  It has 64 pages. Will read through page 27 and deemed it hard and tricky to read (as most Dr. Seuss books are!) and I took over. We ventured to a book about Uranus...but attention was quickly lost.  We finished our reading marathon with Mrs. McBloom, Clean Up Your Classroom! 

We didn't quite finish that one...and Will said he would check it out on his next library day....or ya know, Mom, look on Amazon!

I love all of the opportunities I have to be a part of his first exposure to elementary school.  He is definitely my special little person and we have the best time together!

Off to peruse Amazon!
