Wow--I have a new understanding of obnoxious first grade assignments. Tonight we got to be the first in the class to take home "Popcorn" (the stuffed animal in the picture). The idea behind the assignment was to take the bear with you through the night and write about the different adventures you and the bear have that evening. Well, I don't know about you, but most of our evenings (if they are not filled with soccer) consist of little more than homework, dinner, bath time, stories and bed. So when I found out about the assignment, I decided I had better add a little pizazz to our evening routine. The best I could come up with on short notice was to throw a luau. We had Hawaiian pizza, pina coladas, made "popcorn" leis and did a little limbo/hula dancing.
Honestly, for the last five days I have been totally out of it with a cold, and having to do this today was a little bit much for me, but at least we are done and I can say "ALOHA!" to the bear.
