A couple of weeks ago I took Ava into town for Dr. Seuss's Birthday/Read Across America Day. The library hosted an event where children could go to various locations downtown and hear different people read books. I was relieved to see another teacher and her son and daughter there. It turns out that Ava and her little girl are close in age and they hit it off. I find it amazing how after five minutes they were instant best buddies. It is just amazing how fast little ones can make a friend. We started off at the "party" where Ava refused to get her face painted and then headed to the library for some reading. Ava did okay for the first couple of stories, but once a long one came along, she was done. I was proud of her though. She enjoyed the party, but was disappointed that they didn't have birthday cake!
