Wordless Wednesday:Summer Reading...

Last year I joined Psi Iota Xi.  Each year we host a summer reading progam and it is held at the local elementary scool.  Kids were able to come every Tuesday and Thursday in June to check out books and join in some fun activities.  At the end, prizes were given to random readers and everyone was sent home with two new books, a cool bag, stickers, and candy!  B and Mel were the proud recipients of a Wal-Mart gift card and a McDonald's gift card.  This year's theme was "Reading Under the Big Top".

One day Scooter the clown and her helpers came to visit...

 Scooter thought this girl needed help brushing her teeth...
 and her hair...

She also did a few magic tricks...
 Then the kids posed for pictures to put in their new circus picture frames.

B and Mel...
 B and one of her besties, Dustin...
 Another day, a magician came to visit...
 The kids were rolling with laughter...
 She had a little trouble with her magic wand..

This little boy got to work his magic and put the colors back on the American flag...
 Nope.  That's not right...

There we go!...
 B waited very patiently and she was the last to be chosen to help the magician...
 Her job was to put the colors back on the caterpillar...
 
 Zipping up the bag...
 Making sure it's empty...
 Double checking that it is empty...
 Collecting all the different colors...

 Magic wand #1...
 Magic wand #2 (they keep getting bigger)...
Magic wand #3...
 Did it work?...
 Sure did!...
The caterpillar turned into a beautiful butterfly complete with its colors.  Good job B!
