It's great to be able to have a four-day weekend. We are going to head over to the fair today to see some of my school children's exhibits.
This was such a fun week in school. We celebrated Right to Read Week with a freedom theme. We had election day on Monday, and it was so funny! I had the kids write in their journals about who they had voted for in our mock election (Bush won hands down in our first grade classroom, 21-3. Bailey will be happy. LOL). Well, the way they illustrated the two candidates was just hysterical. One boy drew President Bush with one big eyebrow going across his forehead. One of my girls had him with purple eyes and these real long purple eyelashes. LOL. A lot of the children drew him with an Abe Lincoln style top hat. One boy had him in what appeared to be striped swim trunks. I suggested he had probably better put a shirt on him. LOL. And John Kerry wasn't left out of the humor. One of the boys who voted for him had him in orange and green pants...one leg orange and the other green! If only my kids could have dressed the candidates for their debate...LOLOL.
