Roz's teacher makes birthdays extra special. Her students get an entire week to celebrate. We received the notice before Thanksgiving that Roz's Super Kid time would be the week of December 11th. There were several things Roz needed to prepare. A poster with pictures, a jar with over 100 somethings for a guessing game (Roz chose gumballs) and a favorite book to read.
We got a bit of snow Super Kid week. The kids took snow pants and boots to play in at recess. One day after school, Roz made a new friend. They built this snowman together.
And then she got to make snow cream.
Wednesday was great. Not only was I reading mom, I picked up Roz early from school so we could surprise Ella!
She knew it was (finally) going to be the return of EllaWednesday but she didn't know Roz would be with me for pick up!
It was such a fun afternoon.
I wasn't ready for it to be over!
So I let her open an early Birthday gift from her Aunt Kathy!! At first she didn't know what to think of the Fingerling but she loves the monkey Finn. Roz pretends he is like an elf on the shelf. Trust me, he is not.
Yesterday Roz took in her Birthday treat for the entire class.
Favorite colors, favorite candy.
Super Kid Week exhausted my girl!
And now? We get ready for The Birthday Weekend.
Here we go!
