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.

Sounds like a fun day! My dog would not tolerate a room full of 3rd graders. She'd likely bark and scare them all!

That is the cutest thing ever! Was Thing 1 having a blast? And I love that the grandfather was brought for show-and-tell...priceless. I wish I had thought of bringing my grandfather to s-&-t when I was in 3rd grade. :)

It's been too long since I've read your blog. Great things are happening with the "Things". We went to Universal Studios and they had the perfect shirts for your girls, "Thing 1, Thing 2".

What a good sport Ruthie is.

My boys would have paid good money for your dragonfly. They're impossible to catch and seem to be on their favorite insect list.

Great knitting. If you ever need a good orphanage to donate to, I can probably get some addresses for you.
