Kindergarten Mascot

Amelia's kindergarten class has a mascot. Her name is Spinner The Spider! The kids get to take turns taking Spinner home for the weekend. The goal is to do something fun...take a few pictures and write about it. This was Amelia's weekend.....and......we promplty forgot!! I was checking backpacks after dinner tonight and caught sight of Spinner stuffed in the bottom! I panicked! Thank goodness that Dan remained calm, got Amelia dressed again (she had already had a bath and was in her PJ's) and drove her down to Friendship Fountain Park to snap a few pictures!

I thought I would share some of the pictures that Dan took. I think they turned out cute! She can sure become a "ham" when in front of a camera!


Amelia said she thought the bricks looked like a spider web!

Don't you just love this pose?








This is a great shot of downtown Jacksonville....and of course a great shot of Amelia and Spinner.

Really great pictures! Those projects really make me crazy, though! Drew got the mascot last year when he had stomach flu-YUCK! I'm sure you can imagine the possiblility for pictures!

Whew! I'm glad Spinner is a stuffed spider! Becky's 5th grade class had real, live MICE that had to go home with someone each weekend. We got Christmas break. Oh joy.

Cute pictures. Amelia is sweet and so is Spinner . . . for a spider.
