As I already reported, I "won" three things in the big piedmont fundraiser this year. One was Principal of the Day, which I already wrote about on here. The other two happened yesterday and today. The first was the Penny Carnival. A street just minutes from here was closed to traffic and the neighbors put on a carnival of sorts. It was lots of little games where the kids won tickets. Then they got to choose prizes for the tickets. The prices were things that the neighbors were trying to get rid of. Like stuffed animals, dress up jewelry, small pieces of plastic, games, etc. The kids were delighted with it all even though it was totally homemade and dorky. They saw their friends, teachers, and had a great time.
The second was a bedtime story read to them by Parker's teacher Mrs. Sears. Joanie came over this evening and read all three two books. It was all very sweet and the kids were thrilled to have her here. They asked if she could come every night. She has three children of her own all under 5 so I'm guessing she is fairly busy in the evenings.
