A Fun Book Day

Go to fullsize imageToday was the first “Read-In” at school for the school year.  Becca and I had not gone last year and I was very interested to see what it was all about.  It didn’t start until 6:30 so we had over an hour to find something interesting to do.  I decided to go along with the theme of the evening and took Becca to the local library.  I had wanted to take her since her birthday as you had to be 6 to have your own card.  She was so excited when I told her where we were going!!  After giving them our information we were bestowed with our library cards. Becca then escorted me upstairs to the “kids” section where she picked out 2 books.  While she was looking around, I found Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows on CD (17 disks in all!!).  This brought me much excitement as the first half of the movie will be out in theaters in November.  Now I may have a chance to get refreshed before then!!  After checking out our books, we went to Burger King for a quick dinner and then to the school.  It was a very nice evening.  There was probably about 40-50 kids there of various ages.  Becca was the only one from her class to attend (Maybe I will get brownie points with Mrs. Bradford!!)  Several of the teachers and staff participated in the evening taking turns reading books.  Some of them got really into it and were quite funny and entertaining.  I think Becca really enjoyed it.  I know I did!!  They will be having another one next month with a Halloween theme.  I can’t wait!!!
