I had to post about an incident at school today that cracked me up. I had a class of kindergartners coming in and one stopped by me and explained in a very serious voice that his book was lost because his baby brother threw it out the car window.

Later he came by to ask if he could get a book and I explained that because his book was lost his mom would need to pay for it and that I would print out an invoice for him. He very seriously said "Okay, but make it cheap, because my Mom won't buy anything unless it's cheap." He gave me a knowing look and then walked away. Priceless

So my middle son has decided he wants to be bacon for Halloween. I'm stressed. But, surprisingly enough there are examples of bacon costumes on the web, now it's up to me to replicate them. Yikes, only 2 weeks to get it done.

I've been showing the new Exquisite Corpse Adventure to my students this week. It's been a fun, different way to share a book with them. With the advent of electronic book readers kids are much more comfortable than previous generations have been with reading books in an online format.

This adventure reminds me of the 39 clues series with "episodes" instead of chapters published every two weeks. Each episode is written by a different author - Shannon Hale, Lemony Snicket, and Kate DiCamillo among others. The project will conclude one year from now.

I look forward to following along...
