cat in the hat

Isabelle’s teacher (Melanie) spends her mornings with this cute little guy at another school in our area.  He is blind.  What a character this little guy is!  He loves Izzy and calls her the “girl.”  We spent the afternoon at his school today because Cat in the Hat aka the principal flew in on a helicopter to surprise the students, read them a story, and give them each a book.  Here is N pushing Izzy outside to watch for the helicopter.

The helicopter is landing.  They are listening (it was so loud) and looking at the helicopter.


There is the Cat/principal… (her hub was the helicopter pilot).  They landed just beside the school.


We all came into the gym for a book read by the CAT.


Izzy liked the Cat and enjoyed the story. They gave her an extra special book and she really looked at the pictures!  They gave N a brail book and he was so proud of it.  His para said the first thing he does when he gets a book now is rub the cover to see if it is in brail. 


It was a nice warm day here… I finished the tier 2 stuff finally at 1 a.m. this morning.  I woke up about six with a headache, but thank goodness I feel fine and got a lot done today including this fun field trip! 

Some things about the day to remember … the little first graders in N’s class filed in one by one introducing themselves to Isabelle.  They each commented about something they liked… like her bow or bracelet.  Their teacher had shown them her video riding the bike so many told her they liked her bike.  Then they took turns telling knock-knock jokes!  So cute!  … I was able to sit and have a sandwich with mom and dad before I went to the school.  Today is their actual fiftieth anniversary! Now all I have to do is finish some posts like this for keyman insurance.

    What fun. I saw some stuff on the news here about The Cat and the 2 Things visiting some children. So nice for them to do things like this. Glad Izzy has a new friend and the boy has Izzy for a friend. Friends are so important no matter what our ages.

    Happy 50th to your parents :o)
