day 10-adrienne goes to school

Today was a milestone day for the Little Bit . Not only did she turn 7 months old, she also went to school with me and her sister to read books to some wonderful little kids - and it's no exaggeration to say she was the hit of the party! This was probably the best thing we've gotten to do this December, and I'm so glad to have been able to be a part. We attended an event called Rock Around the Christmas Tree at one of the local schools. Everyone who came as a reader brought a book to read and then give to a child. The party was for the 4 and 5K students, and I would say it was a total success. Me (and Adrienne) read two books to two precious little girls, and my mother-in-law and Marianna read to two others. I don't know if Adrienne has ever been soaked with so much sweet lovin in such a short time before, but she enjoyed every second. I'm thrilled that the girls I had are going to get to take home a book to add to their collection, but even more than that, I'm so glad that I was able to go with my girls and spend an hour with these sweet kids. What a gift to me this Christmas to be able to see the faces of these kids as they sang, read their books and played with the girls.

Here are a few shots of Adrienne with her new found friends!

This sounds like such a fun way to spend part of your time leading up to Christmas. I love the idea.

That is so neat. I'll have to keep my eyes open for stuff like that in my area. I'd love to do something like that.
The pictures of Adrienne & her new friends are great.
