Lester arrived on Tuesday, Jan. 24. The package was a little tattered so I supposed he must have taken an interesting route. We have been reading to him and helping him enjoy very unusual Iowa weather. He even went on a fire drill with us and was very quiet and well - behaved!
Unfortunately we had to say goodby to him today. Because of conferences this week we will be out of school tomorrow. We enjoyed our time with him but wish he had stayed longer.
We also have been having some computer problems with our server and network linkups. I've not been able to receive email or send out regularly.
Thanks for sharing Lester with us. I put him in the mail after the students left today.
