Tyler Won!

Last Friday night, Tyler, Mommy and Grandma went to Family Reading Night held at Washington Middle School.   Tyler loves to read so we thought it would be a good fit.  The only problem is that my little man usually is in bed by 7-7:30 and the event didn't really start until 6:30.  He toughed it out and got to play with other kids.  We learned that we do have to work on him sitting quietly in a circle of other kids to listen to someone read a book.  He usually wanted to sit on the readers lap and turn the pages for them.  So, while he might have been a bit young for Family Reading Night, we were determined to participate nonetheless.    We had to leave before it was over at 8:30 because the little man was just too tuckered out.  We turned in our reading log from the prior week and visited 3 classrooms to show our participation by turning in a hole punched bookmark.  Then...Jeff gets a call Saturday afternoon while Tyler, Grandma and I were at the MU/kU game and heard that Tyler won one of the prize baskets.  I went to pick it up Monday from the library and it was a perfect, age appropriate basket. 

Tyler was excited with the contents - several books, stickers, a coloring book, crayons, some sort of bug/worm stuffed animal, color/shapes flash cards, some girly chap stick (you may see it as an Easter hunt prize), and as you can see a great bucket and shovel for the sand box this summer. 

Tyler WON!  Lucky little boy!
