Frozen on Wednesday

Singing along to Frozen! I don't think the kids really even needed the bouncing snowflake!

Next week we'll follow the adventures of 8 dogs left behind in the Antarctic, and their owner who is desperately trying to rescue them, in Eight Below.

Another Cold Wednesday

Well, my wish didn't come true.  We had another freezing Wednesday.  But the kids and I (and Carole Drake) still managed to make the trek and not turn blue!

In keeping with our winter theme, next Wednesday we are watching Frozen, Sing-a-Long.  So, I'm practicing my fa-la-las and looking forward to a raucous good time!

Kids are Troopers

Wow!  I am so impressed with my Wednesday after school kids!  With temperatures in the single digits, 20 of them still walked over from the Intermediate School to enjoy a movie, popcorn, and game day!  We were bundled up pretty good (wish I had taken pictures), and had a great time watching Mr. Peabody and Sherman and trying our luck at some old games like Operation and Kerplunk!

BaltoLet's hope next week isn't as cold!  But we'll be ready with Balto, the story of the race to get the life saving  diptheria serum to Nome, Alaska!

Christmas Party!

What's more fun than playing "Pin the Nose on Rudolph" or "Christmas Carol Scramble"?  Yesterday our after school kids discovered that it's dressing up one of the volunteers as a Christmas tree!!!!!!!

Thank you, Julia, for your patience and willingness to play along.

Holiday After School Movie and Activity

The awful weather yesterday did not deter many of my after school kids from coming for a movie and activity.  We braved the snow and wind to watch Arthur Christmas, a wonderful but not well-known movie about the magic of Santa.

Next week is our holiday celebration with the classic movie The Santa Clause. 

Grinch Visits!

We were fortunate enough to have a special visitor on Sunday -- the Grinch!!!

Just as I finished reading How the Grinch Stole Christmas, in popped the Grinch himself!  With his heart grown 3 sizes he handed out candy canes and talked to the kids, and we all sang Welcome Christmas together.  The Grinch even gave Tiger Cub Pack 50 a tour of the library!
Next year we'll invite him for some roast beast.
