Ruthie Goes to 3rd Grade
Well, today was a red-letter day for Ruthie: she got to be a show-and-tell subject in Thing 1's class. There are few places in the world she would rather be than in a room full of kids. Of course, the kids enjoyed it, too. Notice the girl in the red pants in the second picture, petting Ruth with her foot. T1's teacher is very animal-friendly. Also present today was a mini schnauzer puppy, 2 beta fish, a praying mantis--and one girl's grandfather. :-) It was a bit of a zoo, but the teacher said a room full of 3rd graders frequently is. Poor Ruthie is now off recovering--it's 100 degrees out today, so she got quite hot in the car.
