Too Many Kids in this Tub

I know you are on the edge of your seats right now. How did the Poetry Cafe go you ask. Well, I'm so glad you did ask.

Minus the snow (Ohio you better have it out of your symptoms because I put on my flip flops and there's no going back for a few months!), it was such a fun night. Really, I give those kids extra points for getting up and sharing their poems. The fifth grade version of Laurie would have been so shy and tried to hide behind my ridiculously big glasses. Not these kids those, they hopped up on stage like it was nothing new.

So do you notice the snazzy sign at the top? That was a, "hey do you think you could pull this together" kind of request that came together so nicely. Little did I know that Office Max and Kinkos wanted to charge me an arm and a leg for that banner. Thank goodness for google. It helped me find a printer who only wanted $30 for a 5 foot banner. At that price, I think we need to start including banners in regular celebrations. Look out Jared for you 24th birthday!

Well, it's awhile till his birthday, so I'll leave you with my favorite poem from the night:

There are too many kids in this tub
There are too many elbows to scrub
I just washed a behind that I'm sure wasn't mine
There are too many kids in this tub

-Sheldon Silverstein
