We held our first 2nd Saturday event today, Snow Day! Now as those of you from our neck of the woods well know, we don't see much snow in Madison, Georgia. But we love to read about it and talk about it and even make it. Yes, we made snow and snowballs! Michelle dazzled us with her storytelling abilities, reading my new favorite book, Thomas' Snowsuit by Robert Munsch, author of the beloved Love You Forever. If you haven't read it, you must! You'll laugh out loud when grouchy Thomas ends up wearing his teacher's dress. What mom hasn't battled with her child over what she (or he) refuses to wear! I remember the day my son announced he was no longer wearing anything that included even a hint of purple, and it seems as if 30% of my daughter's clothes made her itch.
We gathered with a capacity crowd and had a great time. The kids even made an edible snowman out of that preschool staple, marshmallows. It's amazing what you can do with a marshmallow! Add some pretzels, a dab of icing here and there, some black gel, a junior mint and somehow you end up with a snowman. Our February 2nd Saturday Love-fest is already full. So if you're interested in March, call now!
Gotta go...it's January and I'm always on a Flurry Watch.
