Surprise Picnic



Mikayla was chosen as the Superstar of the week in her 3rd grade class this week. She asked me if I would come for lunch one day to eat with her. I said I would but that it would be a surprise what we did or ate. So, today was the day. I went to the grocery store this morning and bought all her favorite lunch foods. Then we packed up a picnic basket and our surprise guests and left. She saw me arrive and came out in the hallway to get me to come in when she saw her guests. Grandma and Aunt Chrissy were able to come as well as Isabella. What a picnic feast we had. She was so excited to see everyone and share with her class. I video taped the sharing time (which of course was about her LPS collection). What I thought would be a couple of minutes ended up being about 11 minutes. That girl can talk!! She gets it from her dad I'm sure. But it was fun. Chrissy kept saying how precise she was and how formal her speech was. I'm so proud of her.

What a perfect day! I think you have totally filled her love tank Stephanie - goes right along with our conversation the other day. I can only imagine how much that meant to her and how many times she will think about it and smile throughout the week.

That is so cool, what a special day for Mikayla! And what a creative teacher she has to have implemented that in her class. And what a great mom you are to have made sure it was super special for her!

And by the way, I took notice of your SNOWFLAKE turtleneck, and I've just gotta say - YOU ROCK!!! :-D

Wow! How fun! I love that your mom and sister came. Now, I only have boys so you'll have to fill me in on what an LPS collection is...
