I am slowly recovering from the book fair and getting out of the constant motion mode. My brain is starting to return to a state of mommy-dom. Which is good. Laundry on the other hand... still out of control! It's been too cold for any naked days around here so there is plenty of laundry to keep my busy. oh the joys!!
The Book Fair almost made our goal dollar wise this year. I think we would have done it if there wasn't a snow day on Friday but I am very pleased with our results. We took 60% of what we raised in profit which we turned into books for the library, each and every student received a free book and the classroom libraries were increased as well. All in all we gave away 830 books!! Amazing number and so happy with it!
Yes I contributed to the successful sales during the book fair. First picture are Kira's newest reading additions. So happy she loves to read. And grateful that the book fair did not have any Warrior books! I would have been broke then. She loves the Warrior series.
Here's Alex's stack! Yup... he made out pretty well too! It was pretty easy this year. I went with dogs for him. He loves to read about dogs and puppies so easy choices! And we needed the third installment of the Library Mouse series as well as Farmer Brown and Duck with Thump, Quack, Moo. The hardest part is not giving into him to read them all every night!! He does try though. If we did that, we'd have to start bedtime around 6pm!! LOL The small stack of Duck books to the right are from Kira. She has generously given them to Alex to enjoy.
oh yeah... in all the fun of book fair, I had a birthday. This year I celebrated the anniversary of my 29th birthday. I think I'll hang out at 29 for a bit. Telling people I was 28 was a bit of a stretch but thinking 29 is good. And look at that, my sweet daughter is giving me bunny ears!! Love her. Just a fun picture before we had my birthday cake!! yummy.
Off to get some things done. (laundry) And figure out dinner. (laundry) And a nap, I could use a nap. (laundry)
