The Tumbleweed's school has a traveling bear that the children take turns hosting for an evening. Last night was our turn to have Monte sleep over.
Monte put on a leotard and joined the Tumbleweed at gymnastics...
Then went with us to the Y for science class about bats...
Monte got to play in the "Dark Slide" at the NAZ, eat Mac & Cheese for dinner and stay up late while the Tumbleweed worked on her page in the Monte book.
In the morning, the Tumbleweed was up at her usual time and when I asked where Monte was, she said "He's still sleeping." When he did get up, we found him a costume for the Little Tots Halloween Party we were going to.
After a quick bite for lunch, Monte went back to school with the Tumbleweed. She was so excited to share what she and Monte did. She had put two drawings of her and Monte in the class book, and had written (with spelling assistance) the story of what Monte did during his stay.
So far it was the most involved homework assignment to date... but she really seemed excited about it, so it was worth the extra time.
