Today we left the house at 9:30 to walk to the school because they were having a special presentation in the gym. When we go there we were early so the girls were able check in and select their free book for the day.
Kinsley selected Yes Day by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld for her free book to take home. Since we left one book home and took one book back she was able to check out one book. She chose The Castle of the Cats retold by Eric A. Kimmel, illustrated by Katya Krenina.
Fiona selected Chester Raccoon and the Big Bad Bully by Audrey Penn, Illustrated by Barbara L. Gibson for her free book to take home. Since we left one book home and took one book back she was able to check out one book. She chose Anno’s Mysterious Multiplying Jar by Masaichiro and Mitsumasa Anno.
Today’s cool presentation was held in the gym. They filled the gym with teachers, summer school and library kids and held a special ZUMBA presentation. The entire gym was moving for thirty minutes to this upbeat rhythmic music. Had Kinsley not been on my hip the entire time I probably would have been up front with Fiona getting my ZUMBA on!!
I’m not sure what Kinsley’s deal was but she was not feeling the ZUMBA. She immediately plugged her mouth with her thumb and stuck her head in my neck. I got the impression she was tired because it’s not like her to back away from a chance to dance around or exercise with other kids.
She was acting a bit shy about it too. But that didn’t stop me from dancing around with her stuck to my hip. Twenty minutes of that and I was taxed! At least now I know what ZUMBA is all about.
