It's the last day of April and I am writing to you because I miss you, tons. However, I'm having fun with my friends in Atlanta!! I have so much to share with everyone. So I'm sending this letter with some pictures of me and my friends. It was a whirlwind of activities! I played soccer, went riding in an F150, and I even got to go to my very first prom. I'm so excited to share the details with you. Wait until you see my date. He's a cutie!
I had two school visits. First, meet my friends at Little Scholars Academy!
This is Ms. Burrell. She is the Pre-Kindergarten teacher at Little Scholars Academy. Here we are at circle time. They read all about my adventures and how I made it through the snowstorm. "Hey, that's just like swirling, whirling snowstorm in our Bear Hunt book!" Brian exclaimed. They read my story of adventure several times that day, ...tee hee.
Here I am, down in my burrow on one masterpiece. Nadia and Ashlyn wanted to show off my glasses. Aren't I cute?
It's lunchtime. Boy, how I love corn on the cobb. I've got the perfect teeth for shaving the kernels, right?
Later that day, we had an Easter Egg Hunt. I was so excited! I hope I get lots of eggs.
On to the next school visit! These are my friends at Legacy Academy. We all decided to hang out on the playground. It was a beautiful spring day.
I did get a bit sweaty hanging out on the monkey bars.
While I had great fun at both schools, it was the afterschool stuff that put a really big smile on my face. I got to pal around with my Legacy Academy school chums on the weekend. Here I am at the market with Jason. "Okay Phyllis, what do we get, bananas? Watermelon?" "Hmmmm, hard choice. Let's get both, Jason!"
Jason took me to the barbershop. He says it's just for the guys but I would be welcomed. Jason got a little off the top and sides. I got my fur trimmed. It's humid in Atlanta! Ahhhh, we look really nice!
Here we are at soccer practice. Jason's not to sure about me being the goalie.
Jason reads how I save the day and he loves the part about the maple candy. "What's that, mom?" "Shucks, mom says no maple candy before bed."
Prom Night at Little Scholar Academy!I know you're asking, "Who is this cutie?" Well he's my date for the prom. Yes, I was invited to the prom. Doesn't he look handsome. Even though it was a formal affair, everyone oooohed and ahhhhed over my green overalls. Don't we make a beautiful couple? It was a beautiful spring evening. Only 72 degrees. There was a beautiful breeze in the air and I knew this would be a special night for me.
These three are trying to convince me to get out on the dance floor and er...shake my groove thang! I'm a bit nervous. They taught me how to do the Wobble. Oh yeah, girls just wanna have fun!!
The next day I visited Shanterria. It was much hotter. The temperature had reached 83 degrees! Shanterria's mom had some errands to run and she let us come along. "Mommy, turn on the air conditioner, please!" We went to the parts store. They had never had a weather predicting groundhog in their store before. Then Shanterria and I went to her grandma's house. We went riding on he bike. I held on tight to the handle bars. What fun I had in Atlanta, Ga. Thank you for my special trip to Georgia, Susanna! I'll be home soon with lots of pictures and autographs for you.
Vats of Maple Syrupy Love, Always,
Phyllis The Weather Predicting Groundhog!!
