There were a few times, missing storyhour wasn't an option. We would still go to the lobrary either later that day or Thurs. Several times, Filipa(sp) or Marylou, would get out whatever craft they did, explain it to rieley and I and then send it home with us to do. They are 2 great ladies, and we will miss them. Thank you ladies, for doing this program and making it fun for the kids.
We still have their summer reading program to look forward to but once Rieley goes to Kindergarten, she won't be going on Wed to storyhour anymore. We will have to set a new time to go and get our 10 books a week, that we read and read and read.
The child LOVES books and it makes us so happy to see her light up with books. Her newest adventures, have included us reading her chapter books at bedtime. We read a couple of chapters each night. She even used some of her birthday money to go to Barnes and Nobles to purchase 3 new cahpter books, princess ones of course.

During our usual story hour last Wed, they held an Easter egg hunt for the kids and a clown from Barnum and Bailey Circus came to visit. The circus will be in Odessa at the end of May and he was there doing a promotion and talking about how the kids could read books to get a free ticket. While he was doing some of his tricks, he asked for a helper and Rieley, all by herself raised her hand and was picked. I was amazed she had volunteered, maybe she didn't know what she was getting herself into. She did great and is still trying to figure out how one ball turned into 2 in her hand.
Each child, was to bring a dozen prefilled eggs to share and to be hidden for the hunt. Rieley got lots of egggs and actually ended up sharing with a few that didn't get to many. Sad, to know we only have one more story hour before summer break and Rieley will be in Kindergarten next year and won't be going anymore.
On Easter morning, we released the butterflies that we have watched grow from caterpillars. All 5 survived until the day we were to release them, but only 4 made it out for their flight. They weren't for sure if they wanted to leave the bet enclosure, but after some tipping of the enclosure they all flew off.
Rieley, was excited to see them fly off and we watched them until they were all out of our sight.

Daddy hid some eggs for Rieley to hunt in our backyard, Easter afternoon. She did great finding them, even though he did try to hide them better this year as she has become a good finder. She, found them in fowers, plants, hiding in the grass and on her playset. Luckily, we only left them out for a few minutes before hunting them, as they had already started to melt in the heat of lovely TX.
