On Thursday we celebrated Nolan's birthday at school. I was invited to read his favorite book to his class. There were many discussions about which book was appropriate and unfortunately several that were vetoed such as Horton Hears a Who (too long) and Polar Express (too long) and a comic book (not easy to read outloud) and a 4 page word book about gardening () and a book about manners (too short).
Emily was thrilled to have roaming ability in this classroom. Ooh so many things to put in her mouth!I read Big Chickens Fly the Coop. It is a silly story, Nolan was a little funny about the attention- he wouldn't wear his birthday crown, he didn't want to sit next to me but rather with his friends.
He also refused the offer to sing happy birthday.
But I think he loved it. We talked about it so much and he seemed to have a really great day!
