Heidi Day

The 2nd graders just finished reading "Heidi" at school and had a celebration at the end. The kids were able to dress up and they had food and played games that Heidi would have... they even had wheelchair races, and made cardboard goats (they are actually really cute)! Abby loved the book and was so excited for the celebration. She chose her outfit out of grandma's dress ups and even selected her own hair style. They even gave each of the students a really nice hard bound copy of the book to keep. I am so glad my kids go to a school that really celebrates literature and really dives into the books and brings them to life by helping them experience it. I have loved all the celebrations and look forward to many more!

Ok, that's really cool. And not just because my name is Heidi, my grandmother is Swiss, and I love that book. :) I should make a dirndl and celebrate next time I read it!

Abby is so cute! Private schooling sounds great. I'm seriously considering putting my children through it.

All of your kids are so cute! I can't believe how grown up Max is!

And I am sort of embarrassed that you read my blurb about Chris's voice! I have a tendency to exaggerate for dramatic effect--please don't think I'm a crazy person...

You guys are awesome!

OMGosh, I LOVE that book! And your little girl looks sweet enough to eat with a spoon! (figuratively of course ;))

And thanks for your note, I can breathe a little easier now.

Yeah... don't let that sweet face fool you! She is definitely more spice than sugar.
