May 9Each week in Peter’s class, one student is chosen as the featured student for the week. On Friday of that week, the student gives an “All About Me” presentation to the class. This past week was Peter’s week. Hubby, Jacob and I attended the presentation on Friday morning. The most entertaining part was some of the questions the children asked, like “If you could paint the White House any color, which color would you choose and why?” Peter’s answer was electric blue because that was the color that Electro, the Spider-Man villain, shot out from his electric beams. Where do they come up with this stuff?

Anyway, the featured student then gets to bring home Backpack Bear for the weekend. Backpack Bear came with a backpack full of clothes from Build-A-Bear Workshop and a notebook detailing all of his adventures during the school year, including photos. Backpack Bear has been to several cities in Texas, been to many local restaurants, gone bike riding, gone to a Girl Scout meeting, got dressed up for Halloween, celebrated Chinese New Year, celebrated Easter, and even attended Peter’s birthday party with another child (which I did not know at the time!).

We have been having fun hosting Backpack Bear. Jacob’s end-of-season baseball party was today, so Backpack Bear thought it appropriate to dress in his Astros outfit. Here he is posing with the cake at the beginning of the party. He also went to vote in municipal elections today, went to Benihana for dinner and went for ice cream at Baskin Robbins. I’m looking forward to including him in our Mother’s Day celebration tomorrow, as well.
