We've been learning about elephants this week during school. They are fascinating animals. Since it has been freezing cold outside, we've been playing with lots of clay and play dough. These elephants were fun to make. We read the book Twenty-One Elephants and Still Standing by April Jones Prince. It tells the true story of how after the Brooklyn Bridge was finished, and people were unsure of it's stability, P.T. Barnum paraded 21 elephants across the bridge to show it's strength. These are our elephants on parade!

VERY nice job on those elephants! You're are such a good Mom and teacher.
Somewhere I still have the postcard you sent from Africa of the Mommy elephant and the baby elephant walking side by side...

I'll have to see if our library has that book. Sounds like you and Joshua are having fun doing school. That's awesome! Next year we'll be starting a little more regular school routine too.
