We had a wonderful Friday the 13th at RML. Even with the internet down all day (!), somehow Ms. Eileen and I were able to go over her plans for this year's summer reading program. Wow, does she have a lot of fun things planned for us as we take our reading passports and head out around the world. Fun! Plus we put the finishing touches on our Not-Too-Old-For-Storytime session next week.
But the best part of the day, of course, was our visit from Christina the Magician! Wasn't she great?! Were you as amazed as I was by her tricks? Were they tricks, or was it real magic?! Even after the show, Christina stuck around a bit, visited with the children, and continued to amaze us. By the way, Christina will be back at RML this summer to give a magic workshop, as well as a balloon animal workshop to older kids (8 and up), so keep that in mind. I certainly feel the magic in me after her show, and hope you do too.
(BTW, that's the wonderful Lucille Ball in the photo doing her impression of Ms. Patty at Magic Show.)
