While things have been quiet here, Scrub-a-Dub-Tub has been rocking all week. The new edition of the Wash Rag is up, we posted a list of the Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards Winners for the categories where we reviewed books, I wrote my post for Blog the Vote (very important!), and last but not least, I wrote my first poem for Poetry Friday (yeah me!). How did Friday get here so fast?
Both blogs will be a little quieter next week, as today marks the beginning of a series of “national holidays” in our house! Halloween speaks for itself: I have very specific instructions on exactly how Vampiress makeup should be applied, there are 20 scarecrows and 20 masks to create at school, then there’s decorating the park for the Pizza Party and costume parade of 150 kids!
At the stroke of midnight, we begin the transformation from Halloween-crazed child to birthday-crazed child. We are taking advantage of school being closed on Monday and Tuesday to invite friends over to celebrate her birthday … which is next Friday.
At the moment, I am not planning to run a Reading Round-up. I’ve been collecting material, but don’t know that I’ll get to it. Thankfully, Jen will likely have all the news and more in her Literacy and Reading Roundups over at Jen Robinson’s Book Page.
Happy Halloween all …
