Books!

The fourth graders at Little Chic's school had a special visitor on Thursday night with our state Senator, Tom Libous. Senator Libous founded a reading incentive program several years ago called "Books"and he visits one New Yorks school a year to visit and promote participation.

Since our family is a reading-type family anyway, this was big news and we hauled down to the cafeteria for a catered dinner (served by our own fourth grade teachers and the school principal). After dinner we got to meet and greet Senator Libous after he had a circle-time chat with the kids. It was probably the first 'celebrity' that Little Chic and Brainy Boy have met and I discovered that Little Chic is a natural-born groupie. She's a lot like her dad in that way!

What a fantastic program for kids. So glad your school was given this great honor. I know Little Chic and Brainy Boy will never forget the event.
